Ali Modu Sheriff and his members have approached a Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday (today) to argue its application for an interlocutory injunction seeking to stop the party from going ahead with its planned national convention scheduled to hold on August 17. Those filling the suit alongside sheriff are Prof. Wale Oladapo, Dennis Alonge-Niyi, Alhaji Bashir Maidugu, Mrs. Hanatu Ulam, Alhaji Lawa Dutsima Anchi, Chief Okey Nnadozie, and Chief Olisa Metuh.
Sheriff and his members had filed the substantive suit on July 4, 2016, contending that that by virtue of the PDP’s Constitution, they must remain in office till 2018. They urged the court to declare all moves aimed at removing, replacing or conducting fresh elections into their offices as illegal, unlawful, unconstitutional, null and void.
Sheriff and co are asking the court to stop the party from going ahead with the planned national convention pending the determination of their substantive suit.
