There was wild jubilation at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) headquarters earlier today as dozens of the party’s staff and supporters welcomed Senator Sam Anyanwu back to the Wadata Plaza.
Recall that a Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday declared Senator Anyanwu as the valid national secretary of the PDP.
Delivering the judgment, Justice Inyang Ekwo restrained the national leadership of the PDP from appointing any person as acting national secretary while Anyanwu’s four-year tenure is still running and subsisting until December 9, 2025, in line with the party’s constitution.
Justice Ekwo also declared that any meeting held or resolution reached by the party to prematurely remove or prevent Anyanwu from exercising the powers of his office would be in violation of Article 47 (1) of the PDP Constitution (as amended in 2017), hence, becomes null and void and of no effect.
It will be recalled that Anyanwu contested for the Imo governorship election in November 2023.
Some party members had pushed for his resignation after the national secretary won the PDP governorship ticket in the southeast state.
