Zoom judgement can’t sack us , says Anambra PDP
The Anambra State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party has rejected an Abuja Federal High Court judgement that purportedly sacked the executive committee of the party in the state on Wednesday.
Speaking at a press conference at the party’s Secretariat on Thursday, the state the embattled chairman of the party, Chief Ndubuisi Nwobu faulted the judgement, stressing that it was delivered by zoom.
The Abuja court had reportedly sacked the Nwobu-led state exco and reinstated a faction said to be loyal to a political godfather in the state(name withheld)
But Nwobu at the Thursday press conference said” Our attention has been drawn to a court judgement delivered via zoom, which purportedly sacked this executive. We want to tell you there is nothing of such, and it can not stand.
“I want to tell you that there was another judgment on 24 May 2018, by Justice AO Musa of the FCT high court. That judgement clearly stated the process in which we emerged, and it stated that we fulfilled all the processes, and we were duly elected.
“We have taken notice of the efforts of political merchants and in a short while, those who are bent on being fifth columnists will hear from us.
“Let it be known that the said judgement is of no substance and does not avail the plaintiffs of any right whatsoever being inconsistent with a valid judgement of a court of coordinate jurisdiction.
“In view of the foregoing, we appeal to the Anambra State PDP family, supporters and aspirants to go about their political activities without let or hindrance.
“Political merchants won’t derail us. we are focused on taking over the state and all our activities remain as scheduled, including primaries and congresses”.
The Abuja judgement came barely two weeks to the party’s primary election scheduled for June 26.
