Ekiti Court Nullifies PDP Caretaker Committee, Restores State Working Committee 

TOPSOCIETYNG

The Ekiti State High Court in Ado Ekiti has declared the appointment of a caretaker committee to oversee the affairs of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state null and void.

Justice Olusegun Ogunyemi reinstated the State Working Committee (SWC) led by Alaba Agboola, overturning the PDP National Working Committee’s (NWC) decision to dissolve the party’s executives in Ekiti State and install a caretaker committee chaired by Sadiq Obanoye.

The judgment, delivered on Tuesday, deemed the dissolution of the Ekiti State Executive Committee by the NWC as illegitimate and subsequently removed the caretaker committee from their positions.

Justice Ogunyemi granted a perpetual injunction restraining Umar Damagun, the PDP acting National Chairman, and the party itself, along with their agents, from recognizing or further recognizing Sadiq Obanoye and other members of the Ekiti State PDP Caretaker Committee.

The court also granted an order of perpetual injunction “restraining Obanoye (3rd defendant) and other members of the Ekiti State PDP Caretaker Committee from parading themselves as Ekiti State Caretaker Committee of the PDP as well as running the affairs of the Ekiti State Chapter of the PDP.”

Reacting to the judgment, Agboola said, “The next step is to make sure that we bring the PDP back to winning ways, bring everybody together and follow the rules of law and the constitution of the party in our decisions. That is the only way the PDP, as a body, can move forward.

“We are a democratically elected exco; we were dissolved without reason. We felt that our only saviour was the court of law. 

“Whatever happens, we are committed to the progress of the party; we are loyal to the national body and we are ready to operate with it in any way or form to move the party forward. We are always ready, we are only upholding the rule of law and the constitution of the party”.
