The crisis in the Peoples Democratic (PDP) has taken a new dimension, following a court order restraining the party from conducting elections into the offices of the National Chairman, National Secretary and National Auditor of the party.
The order was given by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.
Justice Ibrahim Buba gave the order Monday in a suit filed by the National Chairman of the party, Ali Sheriff, the National Secretary, Adewale Oladipo and National Auditor, Fatai Adeyanju asking the court to stop the national convention pending the determination of the substantive suit.
The three national officers reportedly claimed in the suit that their tenures of office was yet to lapse.
The same court also restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from monitoring the conduct of any election into the affected offices.
