A Kano High Court has restrained the national headquarters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), headed by its chairman, Uche Secondus from tampering with the existing state executive structure of the Party under Senator Masaud Jibrin El -doguwa.

The Judge, Justice NS Umar, in his rulings, averred that an order has been granted ordering the applicants and the respondents to maintain the status quo ante pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.

In the same vein, the Judge said in his rulings on the case, as filed by the State Chapter Chairman of the PDP, Senator Jibrin Eldoguwa, that an order of interim injunction is further granted, restraining any other person or persons from interfering or tampering with the tenure of the existing leadership structure in Kano.

He said on behalf of the 1st and 2nd respondents, Senator Jibrin El -doguwa and the PDP, the court restrains any other person or persons from disturbing and or intimidating the administration of the party in the state, local government areas or ward officers from doing anything or taking any steps that are likely to interfere with the tenure of the current party officials as provided under section 47 (1) and section 223(1) (a) of the 1999 constitution.

The Judge, Justice NS Umar, issued an order to the applicants to serve the 1st and 2nd respondents the originating process outside the jurisdiction of his court at the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

He then fixed 5th November 2018 for hearing.

Our correspondent learnt that the former governor, Rabiu Musa Kwankwaso, is making frantic efforts to disrupt the existing leadership structure of the party in the state so that he would have 65 per cent of the party followership including the party leadership.

Already, the former governor is struggling to make sure that only someone with Kwankwasiya background, would emerge as the next governor of Kano State.
