Katsina State High Court has restrained the newly constituted caretaker committee of the state chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party from running the party’s affairs.
The State Chief Judge, Justice M.D. Abubakar, in a ruling, issued an interlocutory injunction to that effect, noting that the order is pending the determination of the suit brought before the honourable court by the party’s embattled acting Chairman, Salisu Uli, and some elected party executives.
Similarly, Justice Abubakar also restrained the 2nd and 3rd defendants, which are the PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission from recognising any member of the purported caretaker committee pending the hearing and determination of the suit.
Recall that the PDP National Working Committee had, on March 23, set up a 13-member Caretaker Committee to oversee the affairs of the Katsina State chapter for 90 days after it dissolved the State Executive Committee.
