According to a hearing notification seen by journalists, Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed has set a specific hearing date for the case.
Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, the governor of Sokoto State, the PDP, and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, are among the other parties named as respondents in the lawsuit with the file number FHC/ABJ/CS/782/2022.
The PDP has been in turmoil for months as a faction loyal to Governor Nyesom Wike has called for Mr. Iyorchia Ayu, the party’s national chairman, to be replaced by someone from the south of Nigeria. That group considers it to be one method of resolving the imbalance in the party’s leadership.
Ayu has passed the reins to Umar Iliya Damagun, the party’s Deputy Chairman (North), notwithstanding the outstanding conflicts inside the organization.
The Chairman will be abroad till the end of the month, according to Simon Imobo-Tswam, Ayu’s Special Adviser on Media and Communications, who made the announcement on Tuesday, September 13, 2022.JAMB Result
