Imo PDP Congress: Court Refuses To Vacate Order Blocking Use Of 3-man Ad-hoc Delegate List

By Deborah Musa, Abuja 


The FCT High Court sitting on Friday, turned down the request to vacate its order barring the PDP and INEC from recognizing the outcome of the purported 3-man Ad hoc delegate election of the PDP held on 30th April, 2022 or any other date.

Attempts to vacate the order of the Court failed today as the Court adjourned to the 20th May, 2022. 

With the refusal of the court to not vacate the Order, the PDP in Imo State can hereby go ahead and conduct its Primary elections to select its House of Assembly, House of Representatives and Senate candidates by the use of only statutory delegates as the delegates election of 30th April has been nullified by the Court and also voided by the report from INEC.

The primary elections are scheduled to hold on the 18th May for House of Assembly, 20th May for the House of Representatives and 24th May for the Senatorial primaries.
Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, reacting to the Court ruling today at the close of sitting, hailed the court for its courage and also said the court’s decision today is victory for internal party democracy and Imo PDP urging party members to stand strong and only elect credible and popular candidates to lead the Party to victory at the general elections.
