Jigawa State High Court sitting in Dutse has struck out a case filed by the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, Aminu Ringim lead faction, challenging the conduct of the party’s local government congress.
Jigawa State High court sitting in Dutse presided by Justice Musa Ubale issued the court order restricting the Sule Lamido lead faction from conducting the PDP’s Local Government and State Congress pending the court hearing.
In a fresh court order, Justice Musa Ubale struck out the case and ordered Lamido’s faction to go ahead and conduct the party congress.
Counsel to the defendants, Barrister Sule Umar said the court agreed with their argument, challenging the competence of the suit and jurisdiction of the court to entertain the matter.

Nasarawa said they were going to appeal the verdict after reviewing the judgement.
