A Jigawa State High Court sitting in Dutse has issued a fresh order as the crisis in the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, in the state continues to take another dimension.
This is following the conduct of the local Government Congress of the party by the Sule Lamido-led faction of the party.
The court, presided by Justice Musa Ubale, issued the court order restricting the conduct of the PDP Local Government and State Congress.
The order arose from a suit filed by Ibrahim Aliyu, counsel to the faction of the party’s gubernatorial candidate in 2015 and 2019 elections, Mallam Aminu Ibrahim Ringim, challenging the conduct of the Congress.
He said the party had never conducted ward congress and as such there should be no other congress until delegates from wards were elected.
Justice Ubale ordered an interim injunction restraining the defendants/respondents, their agents, privies or any other persons acting for and or on behalf of the defendants/respondents from conducting local government and state Congress as purportedly scheduled in the 1st defendant’s letter dated 14th December 2020.
The Judge directed that the motion on notice is scheduled for 29th January 2021.
