Abuja - Two members of the People's Democratic Party (PDP) have approached an Abuja High Court to stop the party from forcing the National Chairman of the party, Adamu Mu’azu and other executive committee members from resigning their positions until after the expiration of their tenure, reports ThisDay.

Two members of the party, Tasiu Iliyasu Hussaini and Waziri Amadu, in a suit dated May 14, 2015 are asking the court to determine whether the party's National Working Committee (NWC) can be dissolved or members forced to resign their positions without following procedures provided by the party’s constitution.
