High Court Sacks PDP National Chairman
High Court Sacks PDP National Chairman.
The crisis rocking the opposition Peoples’ Democratic Party, PDP, has taken a new dimension as a High Court has restrained Uche Secondus from parading himself as the National Chairman of the party.
The order was given by a State High Court sitting in Degema local government area of Rivers while granting the experte order brought before it by some aggrieved members of the party.
Justice O. Gbasam who granted the order also approved the suspension of Secondus as a member of the party pending the hearing and determination of motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.
The development followed a suit No: PHC/2183/CS/2021 filed by Ibeawuchi Ernest Alex, Dennis Nna Amadi, Emmanuel Stephen and Umezirike Onucha against Uche Secondus (1st defendant) and the PDP (2nd defendant).
The judge, after reading the affidavit in support of the motion of ex parte as well as the written address, and after hearing the submission of H.A. Bello, Counsel to the Applicants, granted the interim injunction barring Secondus from parading as the National Chairman, PDP.
The judge further granted leave to serve, by substituted, means the originating summons, motion on notice, all orders made by the court and all subsequent processes on the respondent by pasting same on his gate at No.1 William Jumbo Street, Old G.R.A Port Harcourt.
The judge also granted leave to serve by substituted means orders made by the court on the respondents by publishing same in the Nation Newspaper.
