Prior to Dutse High Court ruling banning all factions of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) from holding local government congresses following court injunctions issued, the Lamido faction flouted the order and went ahead to conduct congress at Birnin Kudu Council.
The purpoted congress headed by Ali Kasim and three others from the national Secretariat of the PDP in Abuja was conducted peacefully, while the faction led by Aminu Ringim boycotted the congress and rushed to the High Court in Dutse to obtain a restrining order stopping it.
Investigation’s by the New Nigeriam revealed that despite the court order restricting the Congresses, majority of the party’s stalwarts attended across the 27 council’s in the state on Thursday.
Earlier, the Jigawa State High Court headed by Justice Musa Ubale had issued a court injunction restricting PDP in the 27 LGAs of the state from conducting the party’s congresses.
Justice Ubale gave the restriction based on the suit filed by a faction of the PDP in the state led by Aminu Ringim, Alh. Musa Kazaure, and Malam Yahuza Gabari as second and third plaintiffs respectively.
But to the former Jigawa State Governor, Alh. Sule Lamido, “we are not aware of such a court order, since we’re yet to be served by court order, restricting the congress.”
He added that the conduct of the congress was in compliance with the instruction from the party’s national headquarters which sent delegations to monitor the conduct of the congress across the 27 LGA’s in the state.
According to him, crisis is obvious in any political setting, assuring that PDP’s wranglings is an internal party affair, which they are working untirelessly in putting their house in order.
” I assure you, all the mockery noise of crisis as viewed by outsiders is obvious in any political set up,” he said, assuring that all the rifts will soon be over amicably.
