Court Stops Anyanwu From Parading Self As National Secretary

A High Court in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has directed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate in the Imo State Governorship Election, Senator Samuel Anyanwu, to stop parading himself as the Party’s national secretary.

Justice M. M. Adamu delivered the ruling following a motion filed by a party member, Douglas Nwachukwu, on October 30 through his lawyer, F. S. Jimba.

Anyanwu, who was at the PDP’s Wadata House headquarters yesterday, was reportedly advised to vacate the premises due to the court’s suspension of his role, according to Leadership newspaper.

The latest court decision aligns with a similar directive from a High Court in Enugu, urging him to step aside as the party’s national secretary.

In the motion, Nwachukwu had prayed the court for the following reliefs: An Order of Interlocutory injunction restraining the 1st defendant (PDP) whether by itself, National Working Committee, National Executive Committee, servants, agents, privies, or any other person howsoever described from recognizing, accepting or dealing with the 2nd defendant (Anyanwu) as the nation secretary of the 1st defendant pending the determination of the substantive suit.

An order of interlocutory injunction restraining the 2nd defendant from parading or acting as the National Secretary of the 1st Defendant pending the determination of the substantive suit.

After listening to Jimba, the court held: “That this application succeeds and the orders are hereby granted as prayed.

“That an order of interlocutory injunction is hereby granted restraining the 1st defendant/respondent whether by itself, National Working Committee, National Executive Committee, servants, agents, privies or any other person howsoever described from recognizing, accepting or dealing with the 2nd defendant as the national secretary of the 1st defendant pending the determination of the substantive suit.

“That an Order of Interlocutory injunction is hereby granted restraining the 2nd Defendant/Respondent from parading himself or acting as the National Secretary of the 1st Defendant pending the determination of the substantive suit.”

The judge adjourned the case to 24th January 2024 for a of the substantive suit.
