The High Court of Federal Capital Territory on May 18th 2020 granted an interim injunction restraining the PDP Chairman Cross River State Chapter, Ntufam Edim Inok and his allies from altering or interfering with the list of elected Executives sent by the PDP National Working Committee with reference number PDP/DOM/GF.V/VOL.2/20-387B and signed by the National Organizing Secretary, Col. Austin Akobundu (rtd.) .
The PDP Chairman Cross River State Chapter, Ntufam Edim Inok has been restrained by the court from acting contrary to the list sent by the PDP National Working Committee signed by the National Organizing Secretary. The judgement came after an ex-parte application was filed on the 12th of May, 2020 in the Registry of the High Court of Federal Capital Territory. The matter has been adjourned to the 21st of May, 2020 where the motion on notice will be heard.
It has been gathered that the National Working Committee of the PDP will sit in no distant time to ratify the suspension of Ntufam Edim Inok by his Ward Executive (Ward 3 in Calabar Municipality). After the suspension of Ntufam Edim Inok by his Ward Executive, the National Working Committee is yet to respond or react to the suspension. The fate of Ntufam Edim Inok is dazzling and uncertain. There are doubts in the air as to whether he will be the Chairman of the Caretaker Committee that will pilot the affairs of the Party in the State for three(3) months or whether his Deputy will take charge as the Caretaker Committee Chairman.
