Court Reserves Ruling On Suit Seeking To Remove PDP Chairman

Ayodele Afolabi, Abuja

An Abuja Federal High Court presided over by Justice Evoh Chukwu has reserved ruling in a case filled by a member of the Peoples Democratic Party in Adamawa state, Mallam Aliyu Buba Gurin seeking to remove the Chairman, Adamu Muazu from office.

Joined as co-defendants in the case are the PDP, Bamanga Tukur, Adamu Muazu and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

At the resumed hearing on Tuesday, counsel to Tukur, Rotimi Oguneso adopted Gurin position that the former PDP chairman resignation did not complied with article 47 (5) of the party constitution.

By the said article, Tukur ought to have given a 30 days notice to the NEC of the party adding that Muazu’s appointment did not follow laid down provisions in the PDP constitution.

He added that the NEC of the PDP has no power to appoint a chairman without being ratified by the National Convention.

On the other hand, counsel to Muazu, Solomon Umor (SAN) asked the court to strike out the case because the plaintiff has no locus to institute the case.

He added that Tukur counter affidavit is strange in law and therefore the court cannot accept it.

According to Umor, the plaintiff did not indicate what injury he had suffered for which basis he filled the case adding that Gurin has not also exhausted all the internal mechanism of the party before proceeding to the court.
