A pressure group within the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), PDP Restoration, has advised the Acting National Chairman of the party, Elder Yemi Akinwomi, to respect Thursday’s Federal High Court ruling in Kebbi State that vacated the suspension of the National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus.
The group in a statement issued in reaction to the Kebbi High Court judgment by Adamu Ahmadu averred that since the current Ag National Chairman is a product of judicial pronouncement, he should not hesitate to vacate the office forthwith pending the determination of the substantive suit.
Elder Yemi Akinwomi was appointed to lead the PDP as the deputy National Chairman (South), pending the resolution of the crises within the party that was subject to court pronouncement.
PDP Restoration warned on the consequences of dissidents within the party instigating Elder Akinwomi to remain in office, in spite of the court decision in Kebbi, saying the party is found and also known to be law abiding.
Ahmadu maintained that anything short of leaving office for the return of the National Chairman, Prince Secondus, will create a serious constitutional crises and political logjam within the party.
He commended the party members for embracing judicial interpretation to resolve the brewing crises, describing it as the beauty of democracy evolving in Nigeria and world over.
The PDP Restoration congratulated the party National Chairman for weathering the storm, and urged him not to be distracted by the ongoing crises, as it is resolvable.
