Justice Nusirat Ibrahim Umar of a Federal High Court in Birnin Kebbi, Kebbi State has ordered Prince Uche Secondus to return to his position as the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
In case KB/AC/M. 170/2021, Justice Umar said she was satisfied after reading the affavidit of the respondents that an interim order should be granted on the purported suspension of Prince Secondus pending the determination of the case.
The judge gave an order granting Uche Secondus to “continue exercising all constitutional powers of the office of Chairman of PDP as enriched in both the 1999 constitution of Nigeria as amended and the PDP’s constitution pending the hearing and determination of the applicant’s motion on notice.”
The court also gave “an order of interim injunction staying the purported suspension of Uche Secondus pending the determination of the substantive motion on notice No” KN/HC/M.170/2021 now pending before this Honourable Court.”
Three concerned members of the party, Yahaya Usman , Abubakar Mohammed and Bashar Suleman are the claimants/Applicant in the case while Prince Secondus and the PDP are the defendants/Respondents.
Recall that a Rivers State High Court ordered the national chairman, Uche Secondus, not to parade himself as the national chairman of the PDP.
