Court orders fresh PDP primaries in Ebonyi

Ruth Oginyi

A Federal High court sitting in Abuja, Wednesday, nullified all primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, held in Ebonyi State.

In suit no FHC/ABJ/CS/1696/2022. Between Tochukwu Okorie as the plaintiff and the independent electoral commission INEC, and the peoples’ Democratic party PDP, the defendants were absent in the court and were not represented by any counsel.

The presiding judge Justice Binta Nyako, however, in his ruling gave a 14-day ultimatum for fresh primaries to be conducted.

Ebonyi peoples democratic party PDP has been into a crisis which has reportedly led the members into disarray.

The Wednesday court judgment, however, is generating reactions in Abakaliki the state capital.

Some of the party supporters are hopeful that the party will overcome the challenges facing the party.

Meanwhile, the ruling All Progressives Congress has reacted to the development of the opposition party.

APC says Ebonyi People’s Democratic Party (PDP) is suffering from hyper paralysis.

The party state chairman, Stanley Okoro Emegha stated this in Abakaliki.

He urged the electorate in the state to continue to be firm in supporting the APC-led Government.

Emegha explained that the multiple interpretations which greeted the verdict of the Federal High Court, Abuja shows that the PDP is nothing but a group of jesters who are confused and dislodged.

He said, “The judgment is highly inconsequential to us as the only political party existing in Ebonyi State. Let me tell you whether the court’s ruling was on the primaries to be re-conducted or on the authenticity of their Chairman it has no effect whatsoever on my party the APC. Notwithstanding that the reactions are coming from disoriented people, APC is on track and formidable”.

“Ordinarily, I wouldn’t have reacted to your questions but to let the cat out of the bag, PDP is dead. Nothing can revive the party. Whether they have a brand new Chairman or candidate (s), the dead party cannot secure a single ballot anywhere in Ebonyi State”.

“Can they campaign? With what and how? They have no scorecard nor any agenda for the Ebonyi people. Be informed, the perforated umbrella was buried the day His Excellency the Governor, David Nweze Umahi joined the ruling All Progressives Congress APC on November 2020”

“My friends from the media world, APC cannot blink an eyelid because of the jesters whose catastrophic end is pursuing from every angle”.

“My Governor chief David Nweze Umahi has practically ensured that the people of the state enjoy the dividends of democracy no matter where they live or who they are”.

“Do you know that Ebonyi people have judged the elections in the favour of APC because of the Governor’s intimidating sterling achievements and the credibility of our candidates? Be informed that Right Honourable Francis Ogbonna Nwifuru is your next Governor. All other candidates will also be returned elected in few months to come”.

“Ebonyi people will enjoy more dividends of democracy under the APC-led Government, he said.
