A Federal High Court in Abuja is said to have restrained the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Adamawa State from conducting its congress on Saturday.

Dr Umar Ardo, spokesman of some aggrieved members and governorship aspirant of the party, told newsmen on Friday in Yola, said his group went to court and had resolved to boycott the congress in protest of the conduct of last week’s ward and local government congresses by the state Caretaker Committee.

He claimed that the committee did not conduct the congresses in line with the party’s Constitution.

According to him, they had complaint to the Congress Appeal Committee on the shoddy way the congresses were conducted in 10 Local Government Areas.

“Those responsible for doing the congress just went into their rooms and wrote what they wanted to write.

“We petitioned the congress appeal committee and the committee did not do justice to it. The only thing they did was to call for harmonisation in Sheleng Local Government Area and then cancelled that of Demsa and Michika Local Government Areas where the impunity was too glaring.

“So we are left with no option than to approach the court and we got this court order and served on them,” Ardo said.

Also speaking, the only PDP lawmaker in the state House of Assembly, Mr Lusambani Dilli, who is representing Demsa constituency, said the party needed to do the right thing in the state by addressing the lopsided congresses.

“Demsa, my local government area, was short changed. The party need to listen to us.

“Whether one likes it or not, we have Bobboi and Joel (former state chairmen) groups in Adamawa State and there should have been a reconciliation meeting of the groups before the congresses.

“When we held the North East reconciliation meeting in Yola, I raised the need for similar meeting for Adamawa State, but it was not conducted by the caretaker committee. This, I believe, is the major reason for the problem we are having now,” Dilli said.

Reacting to the development, the Secretary of the Caretaker Committee, Chief Gebon Kataps denied the allegations.

He said that the committee had been warned of such attempt by some people to always frustrate the party in the state.

He assured that Saturday's congress would go ahead as the committee did not get any court injunction nor was it communicated to from the party headquarters of such injunction.

“We just received the congress officials from Abuja. Sensitive materials for the state congress had arrived and accreditation will commence by 8am and election by 10 a.m,” Kataps said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Adamawa is one of the seven states where PDP dissolved its officials and appointed caretaker committees to conduct fresh congresses at all levels. (NAN)
