He said reappointed the Hon Yakubu Chocho into the caretaker committee to conducts screening for themselves as illegal and unconstitutional based on section 223 of the federal republic of Nigeria amended and section 25(a) of PDP guidelines for the conduct of wards, LGs, and state congresses.
The Court posited out that it was wrong for the State PDP Exco whose tenure expired after four years and seeking re-election to transmute into Caretaker Committee and be umpire in the game they were also taking part.
According to the judgment, the PDP national Secretariat has the right to extend the tenure of the State executive adding that it should be done by a neutral exco that can screen and ensure credibility and transparency in the entire exercise.
Speaking on the judgement yesterday, Hon. Kaze urged the party in the state to abide by the judgement said the judgement has added value to democracy and consequently reinforced the belief that judiciary was the last hope of common man.
“The only way forward is to hang on to the judgement. Before we went to Court, we tried all levels of engagement without any success but the court now says go and conduct proper Congress and also that it is impossible for contestants to be regulators of the same game he or she is taking part”
” With the Court pronouncement, the Independent National Electoral Commission cannot recognise anything done by the present leadership of the party in Plateau State unless fresh State congress is conducted. If they choose to carry on like that it will have negative effect on the party on the long run. It also means that the party is setting himself on a dangerous path ahead of 2023 in Plateau State” he said.
