News » Politics


WARRI—NINE Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chieftains in Delta State, yesterday, asked a Delta State High Court sitting in Effurun, to stop Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan; chair of the party in the state, Chief Peter Nwaoboshi and others from swearing in old executives as the new PDP executives in the state without certified local government and ward congresses.

Vanguard gathered that the court action was to stop the  party leadership from the planned inauguration today of  new executives at local government and ward levels in the state.

The plaintiffs, amongst them, Prince John Jarikre, Chief Abel Ugedi, Joe Amurun, Dr Isaac Okorodudu and Vincent Ahor, and their counsel, Mr  M. Akoro, had urged the court to declare that the tenure of the  old executive of PDP, Delta State, had elapsed since January 2012.

They also want the court to order the governor and others to abide by the harmonization agreement reached by PDP members in the state in January 2012 in the absence of a state congress.
