Court stops Baraje, nPDP’s operation in Nigeria

By Ikechukwu Nnochiri
ABUJA- It was a sad day in the camp of the Alhaji Kawu Baraje led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Friday, as a Federal High Court in Abuja declared its activities illegal, just as it ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to only recognize the Alhaji Bamanga Tukur led national officers of the party.

In a judgment he delivered yesterday, Justice Elvis Chukwu, specifically ordered Baraje, Dr. Jaja Sam Jaja, Prince Olagunsoye Oyinlola and former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, to forthwith, desist from parading themselves as national officers of the PDP.

It would be recalled that prior to the judgement, the defendants, hitherto declared themselves as executive officers of a splinter group of the party popularly referred to as the ‘nPDP’.
