A Federal High Court in Abuja has suspended the PDP National Convention, due to hold in Port Harcourt on Aug. 17, pending the determination of a suit filed by factional Chairman Ali Modu Sheriff.
The embattled factional PDP Chairman, Sheriff, had approached the Federal High Court Abuja to apply for an injunction restraining PDP National Caretaker committee and INEC from holding the party’s National Convention in Port Harcourt, Rivers state on August 17th.
Sheriff, in the suit, is also seeking the court to grant an ancillary order compelling the police to enforce the interlocutory injunction if granted.
Other defendants in the case are Olisa Metuh, Wale Oladapo, Dennis Alonge-Niyi, Alhaji Bashir Maidugu, Hanatu Ulam, Lawa Dutsima Anchi and Okey Nnadozie.
The plaintiffs had filed the substantive suit on July 4, 2016, saying that by virtue of the PDP’s Constitution, they must remain in office till 2018.
The Ahmed Makarfi-led Caretaker Committee of the party had on July 14 announced August 17 as the date for the party’s national convention.
