Akure - Members of the Ondo State Executive Committee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have dragged the leadership of the party before an Abuja Federal High Court over the planned dissolution of the committee, reports Daily Independent.
They are praying the court to stop the party from going ahead with the dissolution of the committee.
They argued in the suit filed by their lawyer, Abdul Ibrahim, that having been elected on March 17, 2012 to serve a four-year term, the dissolution of the Exco will amount to a breach of their rights.
The dissolution is intended to allow for the re-constitution of the Exco in order to cede 50 percent of its membership to loyalists of Governor Olusegun Mimiko, who recently rejoined the party from the Labour Party.
