The Alhaji Abubakar Kawu Baraje-led faction of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has noted the ruling by a Lagos High Court, presided over by Justice Oludotun Adefope-Okojie, who on October 10, 2013, threw out the suit instituted against what it describes as “the illegal party regime of Alhaji Bamanga Tukur and his National Working Committee (NWC)”.
The faction in a statement by its factional Publicity Secretary Eze Chukwuemeka Eze assured their teeming members and Nigerians in general that “there is no cause to worry”.
The faction noted that the ruling has nothing to do with the merit of the case but the place of filing, adding that it shall hasten to re-file the suit, in Abuja, given what it describes as “the merit of our case”.
“Our determination to sack the usurper, Alhaji Tukur, and rescue our great party from his misrule has never been stronger”, Eze said.
While egging on its supporters and members not to despair or exercise any atom of fear, the Alhaji Baraje led-PDP urged its loyalists to continue to support the faction now it is getting closer to freeing PDP from what the faction calls “the enclave of undemocratic elements currently holding us to ransom and doing everything within their powers to ruin all that our founding fathers struggled to build”.
According to splinter PDP, “With today’s court ruling, we are now very determined to restore PDP to the path of honour particularly now that we have lost our great first National Chairman, Dr Solomon Lar to the cold hands of death. Let us reiterate that nothing and we repeat nothing will stop us from implementing the visions of both Dr Solomon Lar and all the founding fathers of our great party to the letter and keeping all undemocratic elements at bar from leadership of our great party”.
