Court Stops PDP National Convention

The crisis in the Peoples Democratic (PDP) has taken a new dimension, following a court order restraining the party from conducting elections into the offices of the National Chairman, National Secretary and National Auditor of the party.

The order was given by a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos. Incumbent National chairman, Senator Ali Modu Sheriff, is the sole candidate for the office of the chairman at the party's national convention slated for May 21in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

The same court also restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from monitoring the conduct of any election into the affected offices.
