Abuja - A Federal High Court in Abuja has been asked to nullify the appointment of the National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Adamu Mu'azu, reports Leadership.
Reason being that his appointment was done in violation of Sections 45(1) and (2) of the party's constitution.
In the suit, the plaintiff, Emmanuel Onu, who claimed to be a member of the PDP, is praying the court for a declaration that the purported resignation letter of Bamanga Tukur presented by President Goodluck Jonathan to the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the party was in clear violation of Sections 47(5) and (6) of the party's constitution.

The plaintiff is therefore asking the court to hold that Mu'azu's appointment was invalid.
Onu’s suit is the second suit challenging the appointment of Mu’azu in the last two months.
Mu'azu was appointed to succeed Turkur, who resigned as chairman on January 15, 2014.
