Court Dismisses Suit Seeking To Disqualify Local Government New Officials From Voting In The Primaries By TIMI ALAIBE And Others

by Anita Ogona

A High Court sitting in Sagbama Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has struck out a suit seeking disqualification of newly-elected local government officials from participating as delegates in the ongoing primary election of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

Some of the Aggrieved aspirants includes a former Managing Director, Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC), Chief Ndutimi Alaibe and Chief Fred Agbedi had approached the court to bar the ad-hoc delegates from partaking in the primaries

They had argued that since the elected officials failed to satisfy the 90-day ceiling in the case of local government officials and one-month time-frame in the case of ad-hoc delegates in line with the provisions of the PDP Constitution, they were not qualified as delegates for the internal poll.

The judge Justice Ebiyerin Umukoro also said the claimants lacked the locus Standi to demand the disqualification of the ward and local government ad-hoc delegates elected to participate in the primaries.
