The Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta has restrained the national Executive of  People's Democratic Party, PDP from putting in place any caretaker in the State chapter of the Party.

In a bid to enforce their rights, the newly elected Executives that emerged from the State Congress approached the Federal High Court, Abeokuta in a suit FHC/AB/CS/44/2020 asking the Court to restrain national PDP from tampering with the election held on April.

"And based on their prayers, the court granted them an order directing parties to maintain status quo antebellum which is to the effect that no one should do anything to the new State Executive until the Motion on Notice before the court is heard and determined". 

" Specifically, the court, in Suit FHC/AB/CS/44/2020 ordered that, “…the parties shall respect the principle of lis pendens and maintain status quo antebellum pending the hearing and determination of the Applicants’ Motion on Notice which is already filed before this court.”

"The case was adjourned to the 21st of May, 2020.

" With the order, it means no other congress can be conducted in Ogun State PDP; no caretaker can be put in place and no purported reconciliation by some impostors can stand". 

"The only genuine reconciliation that can stand the test of time and the law is the one driven by State Executive Committee in collaboration with all the leaders and elders at the ward, local government and state levels.
