A High Court sitting in Rivers State has restrained the Peoples Democratic Party’s National Chairman, Uche Secondus from parading or acting as head of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC).
The court also ruled that Secondus should desist from parading himself as a member of the major opposition party, PDP, henceforth.
Justice Okogbule Gbasam of the Degema Division of the Rivers State High Court sitting in Port Harcourt gave the order on Monday.
“That an order of interim injunction is granted restraining the first defendant from parading himself as a member of the second defendant or national chaiman of the defendant or performing the functions of national chairman of the second defendant or any committee of the second defendants at ward, local government or state level or calling for any ward, local government or state congress of the second defendant or setting up committees for such congresses or participating in any activity of the second defendant whatsoever whilst on suspension as a member of the second defendant pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice for interlocutory injunction,” he said.

Secondus and the PDP were listed as the first and second respondents to the suit.
