Court Affirms Odii Ifeanyi As PDP CandidateNews Source: Leadership News

A Federal High Court sitting in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi State capital, has mandated the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to transmit the names of the candidates that emanated from its primary held on May 28 and 29, 2022 to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) without delay.

Justice Fatun Riman gave the order in his judgement in a suit marked: “FHC/AI/CS/105/2022” brought by Chief Chukwuma Odii Ifeanyi against the PDP, INEC and Senator Obinna Joseph Ogba.

By the judgement, Ifeanyi is now the legally recognised PDP governorship candidate in the state. The court further granted a declaration that the PDP could not have held any valid House of Assembly, House of Representatives, Senate primaries in Ebonyi State on 4/6/2022 and 5/6/2022 and Governorship primary election on 5/6/2022 in Ebonyi State.

Wike, Others Resolve To Remain In PDPNews Source: Leadership News

Benue State governor Samuel Ortom has said his Rivers State counterpart Nyesom Wike and other Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governors who were aggrieved over the presidential running mate saga would not dump the party.

Ortom said Wike and the other governors agreed after a meeting in London that they won’t defect from PDP. Atiku’s choice of Delta State governor Ifeanyi Okowa had infuriated Wike and some of his colleagues. Wike had emerged a favourite of key members of the party to emerge Atiku’s running mate.

He also said the PDP presidential candidate, former vice president Atiku Abubakar has agreed to reach out to Wike to pacify him over the saga. Ortom added that Atiku asked him to persuade Wike for the reconciliation meeting to hold.

Stressing that he would be pacified, when Wike is pacified, the Benue State governor added that Wike remains a factor in PDP having sustained the party all through the period most party members left.Photo Source: Google
