Court Dismisses Suit Seeking to Reinstate Ayu As PDP National Chairman


Briga News Nigeria

A lawsuit seeking to set aside the suspension of Iyorchia Ayu as a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has been struck out by a Benue state high court in Gboko.

The plaintiff, Nongo Ordue who filed the lawsuit on behalf of the 17-member executive of Ayu’s Igyorov council ward of Gboko LGA, also asked the court to reinstate Ayu as the national chairman of the PDP.

However, Clement Mue, counsel to the PDP, argued that the lawsuit constituted an abuse of the court process as a similar case was filed before a high court in Makurdi and sufficiently addressed the issues raised by the plaintiff.

Justice D.M Igyuse who presided over the case, described it as an abuse of the court process. Before dismissing the lawsuit, he described it as “the worst form of abuse of court process.”
