A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Abuja has nullified the expulsion of Senator Buruji Kashamu (Ogun East) and Ogun State Chairman of the party, Engr Adebayo Dayo by the People Democratic Party.
Justice Valentine Ashi, in her verdict, dis-annulled the ruling the expulsion, citing the decision on the flagrant disobedience of a subsisting court directive made on December 7, 2017, which was restated on January 9, 2018, directing parties not to do anything to jeopardise the hearing of the pending case.
In addition to this, the judge also trashed the PDP’s letter, dated August 1, 2018 conveying the expulsion to Kashamu and Dayo.
The judge ordered PDP’s Chairman, Uche Secondus to, within 48 hours of his receipt of the court order, to show cause why the court’s disciplinary measure should not be deployed against him for aiding his party to violate a valid court order.
In the alternative, why he (Secondus) should not be referred to the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF) and Minister of Justice for prosecution, before the Magistrates’ Court of the FCT, for obstructing the course of justice.
