The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is set to appeal the court judgement of the high court on Ogun State chapter of the party.
This is the resolution of the National Working Committee (NWC) of the PDP at its meeting on Tuesday, October 4, 2022.
National Publicity Secretary, Hon. Debo Ologunagba, in a statement said the party reviewed the situation in its Ogun State Chapter, as it relates to the judgement of the Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta in Suit No. FHC/AB/CS/83/2022 delivered on September 27, 2022.
He said, “The PDP is dissatisfied with the judgement of the Federal High Court, presided over by Hon. Justice O.O Oguntoyinbo, which directed the Ogun State Executive of the Party to conduct a fresh primary to nominate candidates for the 2023 general elections.
“In his judgment, Hon. Justice Oguntoyinbo held thus “I hereby Order that fresh primary elections be conducted by the current Ogun State Executives of the 2nd Defendant (Peoples Democratic Party) for the nomination of candidates for elective positions i.e House of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senatorial and Governorship elections within 14 days”.
