The Lagos Sate Chapter of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) on Tuesday urged the National Judicial Council (NJC) to put in place measures to prevent courts from delivering conflicting judgments.

Chief Ola Apena, the Deputy State Chairman of PDP, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the recent court orders on the party’s convention by Federal High Courts in Abuja and Port Harcourt were conflicting and absurd.

However, a Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, specifically ordered the PDP to proceed with the convention as scheduled without hindrance.

“Our position is that some of these court houses make themselves a willing tool in the hands of some of these people who are fast in purchasing black market injunction and all the rest.

“So, if the judiciary will not put its house in order, then they would want to make themselves a subject of ridicule.

“If two courts of coordinate jurisdiction give contradicting judgments then, you are giving the litigant the freedom to choose which one suits him.

“I was expecting that some internal mechanism to prevent what happened yesterday could have been done.

“I believe that the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court can consolidate all cases involving the party in one particular court; but, what is happening is just putting the judiciary to a kind of ridicule.”

He argued that with the two contradicting judgments, the Makarfi faction will flow with the Port Harcourt judgment while those who believe in Sheriff would want to hang on to the Abuja judgment.

“So, none of us have bridged any law. We are all obeying the court order because the court in Abuja is not superior to that in Port Harcourt the one in Port Harcourt is not superior to the one in Abuja,” he said. (NAN)
