Ogun PDP: Supreme Court strikes out suit against Kashamu group

The Supreme Court on Monday struck out an appeal filed by the National Secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) against the Senator Buruji Kashamu-backed leadership of the party in Ogun state.

The suit was struck by Justice Mohammed Musa Dattijo on the ground that the appeal had become statute barred, lifeless and worthless having been overtaken by the 4th Alteration to the 1999 Constitution.

PDP in the appeal had challenged the judgement of Justice Buba Ibrahim of the Federal High Court and upheld by the Court of Appeal which conferred recognition on the Dayo Adebayo-led Executive Committee of the party in Ogun state as the authentic leadership.

At the resumed hearing, the court asked the appellant’s lawyer Emeka Etiaba (SAN) whether the case was a pre-election matter to which he answered in the negative.

He said the case was about the leadership of the PDP in Ogun state and was not election related.

However, counsel to the Dayo Adebayo-led group, Dr. Alex Izinyon SAN insisted that it was a pre-election matter because it relates to the candidate nomination for the next general election.
