Court halts dissolution of Adamawa PDP exco

ABUJA—A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has ordered Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to stay action on its decision to suspend the Adamawa State Executive Committee, pending a judicial review on the outcome of the party’s National Executive Committee, NEC, meeting which held on August 12.

The order, which was granted by Justice Binta Nyako is sequel to a suit filed by aggrieved members of the dissolved executive committee.

The suit has Abdulrahman Bobboi, Ziratumba Digwe, Albetha Gangkero and Shehu Jacob as the plaintiff, while the PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, are the respondents.
