The Abuja Division of the Federal High Court on Wednesday restrained the national body of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from dissolving the Stating Working Committee(SWC) of the People’s Democratic Party in Rivers State, over alleged anti-party activities.

In a judgement delivered on Wednesday, the trial Judge, Justice Inyang Ekwo, said the case of the plaintiff, Mr Desmond Akawo succeeded on merit.

Akawo, the Rivers state’s PDP Chairman, had sued the party and its immediate-past National Chairman,  Dr Iyorchia Ayu, representing himself and members of the National Working Committee (NWC) and National Executive Committee (NEC)) as 1st and 2nd defendants.

The plaintiff also joined the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as 3rd defendant in the amended originating summons marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/112/2023, filed on March 9 by his counsel, Dr Joshua Musa (SAN).
