Gulak’s suit against PDP Chairman suffers set back

12 February 2016, 15:10

Abuja - The suit by former political adviser to ex- President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak, against the Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus has suffered a setback, reports Thisday.

The Court of Appeal, Abuja Division on Thursday dismissed the application brought by Gulak, seeking an interlocutory injunction to stop Secondus from operating in that capacity.

An Abuja High Court had earlier ordered Secondus to vacate the office within 14 days on ground that the chairmanship position of the party was not zoned to his state.

The Appeal Court in its ruling on Gulak’s application on Thursday struck out the motion pending the determination of another suit related to the issue.

There are two suits before the court on the matter.

One by Emeka Etiaba (SAN) for PDP and Secondus seeking a stay of execution of the judgement and order of the FCT High Court while the second motion was filed by  J. Okutepa (SAN) for Gulak, seeking an interlocutory injunction to restrain Secondus from continuing to act as the National Chairman of the PDP.
