A legal practitioner, Bar. Kingsley Nweke, has advised the ruling People’s Democratic Party in Abia State to adhere to a court order restraining her from going ahead with the 3 man Ad-hoc delegate primaries slated Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022.
Bar. Nweke, who gave the advise while speaking with newsbuka.com, said the 3 man Ad-hoc delegate primaries or indirect primaries, is undemocratic, adding that it is meant to disenfranchise the actual delegates who are supposed to vote according to their conscience.
He added that since there is a pending hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice for Interlocutory for the office of Governor of Abia State in the 2023 General Elections, there is need to wait for the verdict of the court before forging ahead with the Ward primaries of the party.
Bar. Nweke, maintained that flouting the order by the PDP, will amount to a rejection of whoever that will emerge through the primaries at the long run, reiterating that the PDP in the State cannot afford to go into legal battle if a candidate emerges through this process.
He revealed that no matter how wrong a court order appears to be, it has to be obeyed and carried out to the latter until proven wrong by another court of competent jurisdiction.
Recall that a court order had restrained the ruling People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and its functionaries and Committees from forging ahead with the 3 Man Ad-hoc Delegate Primaries slated to hold tomorrow, Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022 in Abia State.
