PLATEAU STATE CHAPTER OF PDP REMAIN VACANT AS EITHER (8)LAWYERS VOLUNTEERED TO JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST IMPUNITY AND INJUSTICE
Increasingly, our efforts to confront impunity and imposition in Plateau State Chapter of PDP is gaining momentum. Yesterday Wednesday 27th January 2021, another State High Court delivered judgment invalidating PDP Congresses in 6 federal wards and Jos South LGA as well as Bwal Ward in Qua’an Pan LGA. Gradually, the resistance of a few is being effectively checkmated at various levels through our legal artinary, they go about desperately seeking to be recognized as “State EXCO” in defiance to valid court judgments.
The ilegality perpetrated in many PDP Wards/LGA “if conducted” during the 2020 Nationwide congresses and the charade gathering of 29th August 2020 have consistently failed the examination of courts. Many of the congresses have not been found to be consistent and in compliance with Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, 1999 (as amended) and the Electoral Act (2010) (as amended), the Constitution of the Peoples Democratic Party and the Guidelines for the Conduct of Ward, LGA, State, Zonal Congresses and the National Convention of the Peoples Democratic Party issued in January 2020.
Rather than quietly withdraw having been invalidated, express remorse, seek forgiveness for misleading several unsuspecting party faithful thereby causing the party it fortunes at polls, these desperate forces have continued to act more according to their sit tight syndrome,whim and caprices. In contempt of the Constitution of the Peoples Democratic Party and Court Judgments/Orders, they wrote a laughable correspondence purportedly suspending an individual who is part of Plateau PDP Sec Aspirants.
In response to a call by a Courier Service Provider, our team of lawyers proceeded to their office No 41 Yakubu Gowon Way Jos and took possession of the said “Letter Of Suspension” authored by one Hon Emma Tuang of Dokan Kasuwa, Qua’an Pan LGA.
Armed with evidence, our lawyers are prepared to filed contempt charges, in the meantime the state Secretary (Aspirant) Hon Iliya Zakari has since responded. The letter, which was send back to the same Courier Service Providers,that has scared Hon Emma Tuang who fears for contempt of court chargies hanging on his neck, he lied that he has travelled out of the country and has been running helter-skelter trying to evade service.
We remain undaunted by the antics of a few who believe they can reduce PDP into a personal estate, the era of unchallenged impunity in Plateau PDP is over. Even if for the sake of posterity alone, we will not relent and we are pleased to inform teeming PDP faithful across Plateau that (8) legal luminaries have voluntarily joined forces with our team of lawyers to ensure that our Counter Impunity/Imposition drive succeeds.
With this development,of legal team is injected with more hands to handle this situation to it’s logical conclusion.
We congratulate and send our good tidings to our gallant fighters of impunity and injustice in Plateau PDP for securing judgment yesterday in the litigations of Jos South and Qua’an Pan LGAs.
Thugs and rascals don’t go court of law.
Be prayerful as always in our quest to installed discipline, justice and fair play in our party.
Slowly and gradually we shall all jubilate.

State Publicity Secretary (Aspirant)
