BREAKING: Again, Court sacks Secondus shortly after resuming as PDP Chairman

The crisis within the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP is far from over as another court has ordered Uche Secondus not to resume office as the National Chairman of the Party.

POLITICS NIGERIA gathered that Secondus has been reinstated and was set to resume as the party chair after being suspended by a Rivers State High Court last week when a Cross River State Court, on Friday, granted an interim order restraining Secondus from resuming office as PDP chair.

Presiding judge, Edem Kooffreh, issued the order while ruling on a motion ex parte marked HC/240/2021, and filed by an aggrieved member of the party, Enang Wani.

“An order of interim injunction restraining the first defendant (Secondus) from presiding over the national executive committee meeting of the 2nd Defendant scheduled to hold on Saturday, the 28th of August, 2012 or any subsequent meeting of the national executive committee of the second defendant and from presiding over any meeting of any organ of the second defendant or attending any of such meetings of functions in the capacity of national chairman of the party or in any other manner or form attempting to forcefully gain entrance into any such meetings or into the premises of the second defendant as national chairman of the party pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice,” the judge ruled.

The court also restrained the PDP from recognising or granting Secondus the powers due to the office of the national chairman.

“An order of interim injunction restraining the second defendant, its members, officers and agents from recognising the first defendant as its national chairman or from according to him any of the powers, rights or privileges due to the holder of the office of the National chairman of the 2 Defendant pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice,” the ruling reads.
