A Bauchi state High Court has restrained Barrister Ahmed Farouq Gwadabe from parading himself as the Chairman of the Peoples Redemption Party (PRP) in Bauchi State.

Hon Justice S.I Zadawa in an order of interim injunction on Tuesday restrained Gwadabe and Saleh Yarima from posing as Bauchi PRP Chairman and Northeast Zonal Vice Chairman of PRP respectively.

Barrister S.G Idrees, Legal Adviser of PRP Bauchi State filed a case on 26th October, 2020 before the Bauchi High Court praying for an interim injunction stopping Gwadabe and Yarima from posing as State Chairman and Zonal Vice Chairman of the party accordingly.

A copy of the judgement which was made available to our correspondent revealed that the court order restrained Bauchi PRP from recognising Ahmed Farouq Acting Chairman of the party ‘pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.’

Justice Zadawa said the decision of the court emanates from the ‘purported election’ which declared Farouq as Acting Chairman of the party held on 23rd October, 2020 pending determination of the motion.

The court also directed Saleh Yarima to desist from parading himself as an exco of the party hence, the illegal meeting he convened which declared Farouq as Acting Chairman is null and void.

Barr. S. G Idrees, PRP Legal Adviser told our correspondent that the court permitted the excos of the party to elect a new chairman of the party according to the provisions of the constitution of the party.

Recall that the People’s Redemption Party, PRP has elected Barrister Ahmed Farouq Gwadabe as its interim Chairman following the resignation of Shehu Barau Ningi last week.
