PDP Secures Court Order Against Five Defected Governors

In the heated controversy trailing the on going defection among political parties, a Federal High Court yesterday directed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to serve hearing notices on Governors Murtala Nyako (Adamawa), Chibuike Amaechi (Rivers), Aliyu Wamakko (Sokoto), Rabiu Kwankwaso (Kano) and Abdulfatai Ahmed (Kwara) by substituted means, in the suit challenging their defection to the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC).

The order was granted by the court at the instance of the PDP as a result of the absence of the governors or their representatives in court yesterday

The presiding judge in the suit, Justice Gabriel Kolawole further ordered that the hearing notices should be pasted on the national secretariat of the APC in Abuja and be published in two national dailies.

Justice Kolawole, who granted the application, adjourned the case to February 6 for hearing of the substantive suit.
