The crisis in the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP) might not
end anytime soon, following this
recent development.
Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High
Court, Abuja has ordered the Independent
National Electoral Commission (INEC) to
recognise the governorship candidates from
the Ali Modu Sheriff’s faction.
The court also ordered INEC not to receive any
list from any other person regarding the Edo
and Ondo governorship primaries, except
Sheriff.
Justice Abang also said “reject and ignore any
activity including primary elections/congresses
for the nomination of candidates for the
gubernatorial elections in Edo and Ondo states,
purportedly conducted on behalf of the 2nd
defendant (PDP) by any other persons or
group of persons other than the Sheriff
group.”
An Abuja High court on Wednesday, June 29,
2016, sacked Sheriff as the chairman of the
PDP.
The National Secretary of his faction, Adewale
Oladipo however dismissed the reports,
describing it as false. »
