A federal high court sitting in Abuja has stopped the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from sacking the Governor elect of Rivers State, Siminlalayi Fubara and his deputy Ngozi Odu for working against the party.

The Informant247 recalls that the Governor elect and 48 other members of the party has prayed that the court bar the PDP from taking disciplinary action against them.

They persuaded the court to regard the party’s readiness to sack them for being loyal to the Governor of the state, Nyesom Wike as an infringement on their rights.

The presiding judge Inyang Ekwo on Tuesday April 18 held that taking disciplinary action against them would be a breach of their rights to freedom of association.

He said any disciplinary action to be taken against members of political parties should be in accordance with the party’s rules and guidelines.

The Informant247 recalls that Wike was the leader of the aggrieved PDP Governors otherwise known as G-5 governors who called for the removal of the national chairman of the PDP, Senator Iyorcha Ayu, in the build up to the February 25 presidential election.

This came on the ground that Ayu was from the same region as the presidential candidate of the party, Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

The Governors declared that the removal of Ayu would serve as their precondition to support Atiku, and therefore did not eventually support Atiku during the February 25 presidential election.
