Justice Suleiman Belgore of an Abuja High Court has vacated the order stopping the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from proceeding with its planned mini-convention to elect fresh officers into its National Working Committee (NWC).
The court had on July 25 this year restrained the PDP from conducting any form of convention “whether special or ordinary,” for the purpose of electing any officer into the office of the PDP pending the determination of the suit by the aggrieved members of the party.
With the court order, the party can proceed with arrangements for the convention. This came as a result of an application for the withdrawal of suit filed by three members of the ruling party Abba Yale, Alhaji Yahaya Sule and Bashir Maigudu challenging the composition of the party’s NWC.
The plaintiffs’ lawyer, Friday Nwosu, told the court that his client had elected to explore the party’s internal mechanism in addressing their grievances., He said the plaintiffs had resolved to withdraw their case and table their grievances before the party’s National Reconciliation Committee headed by Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson.
He therefore prayed the court to strike out the plaintiffs’ case.
Lawyers to the defendants (PDP and its national chairman, Bamanga Tukur), Tobechukwu Nweke and Raphael Oluyede respectively did not object to the plaintiffs’ decision to withdraw their case.
