Two days after the withdrawal of two separate suits challenging the appointment of Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu as  national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) before a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, another fresh suit has been filed seeking  Mu’azu’s removal.

A member of the PDP, Aliyu Garba Gubrin had, through his lawyer, Lilian Ojimma approached the court seeking a declaration that Mu’azu cannot preside over affairs of the party because his appointment as chairman did not follow due process.

Joined as defendants in the suit alongside Mu’azu are the former chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Sunday Tribune gathered that the suit is coming at a time when Mu’azu is gearing up to chair the party’s national convention slated for December 6,2014 where President Goodluck Jonathan is expected to emerge as the PDP presidential candidate.

The plaintiff, in the suit No. FHC/ABJCS/821/2014, dated November 5, 2014, is challenging the purported resignation of the former chairman of the party, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur.

The PDP, through its counsel, Kwor Victor has filed a memorandum of appearance and the case assigned to Justice Evoh Chukwu will come up on November 12, 2014.

The plaintiff, a House of Representatives aspirant begged the court to determine whether the resignation of Tukur on January 15, 2014 duly complied with Section 47(5) of the Constitution of the party.

He also asked the court to declare that Tukur’s resignation is invalid for non compliance with the Constitution of the party and the Electoral Act 2010.
