The Federal High Court, Abuja has fixed May 10, for hearing in a suit that seeks to stop the planned May 28 Presidential Primary Election of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Reports say that a presidential aspirant, Mr. Cosmas Ndukwe, filed an ex-parte application for an order of injunction restraining the PDP from proceeding with its scheduled primary election.
When the matter was called on Thursday, counsel to the plaintiff, Mr. Paul Erokoro SAN, told the Court that he received PDP’s affidavit, stating why the primary election should not be stopped.
Mr. Erokoro prayed to the Court for an adjournment to enable him to peruse the document and respond to the reasons adduced by the PDP against the suit of his client.
Counsel to the PDP, Mr. Mahmud Magaji, SAN, as well as counsel to the other defendants, did not oppose the request for an adjournment.
Justice Donatus Okorowo, eventually fixed May 10, to hear the matter and asked parties to file and exchange their processes ahead of the day.
