You can’t hold S-West zonal congress – Oni tells PDP

Crisis over the planned South-West Zonal Congress of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, deepened, weekend, as former Governor of Ekiti State, Chief Segun Oni told the Deputy President of the Senate and Secretary, Special Convention Planning Committee, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, that the party should forget the idea of holding a fresh congress in the South-West to elect new Zonal Executives of the party.

Oni, in a letter dated June 26, 2013 and signed by his counsel, Mr. Gboyega Oyewole, relied on “the pendency of an action in Suit No: AB/58/2013 in challenging the dissolution of the Chief Segun Oni led South West Zonal Executive of the PDP.

In the suit, “there is a subsisting Motion on Notice seeking a prayer of the court for ‘’an order of interlocutory injunction restraining the defendants either by themselves  or privies from interfering with the performance of the claimants’ duties as the South West Zonal Executive Committee or in any other manner howsoever giving effect to or acting upon the decision of the 3rd Defendant purporting to dissolve the South West Zonal Executive Committee of the 3rd Defendant pending the hearing and determination of this suit.”
