An Enugu State High Court has granted and Ex-parte Order restraining a gubernatorial aspirant on the platform of the Peoples Democratic, Senator Ayogu Eze from parading himself as the governorship candidate of the party pending the hearing and determination of a case filed by the Plaintiff and the PDP governorship candidate for Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
The court, also restrained the PDP from recognizing or submitting the name of any other person other than Hon. Ugwuanyi as the party’s gubernatorial candidate in Enugu State for the February 2015 general elections.
The order has Senator Ayogu Eze and the PDP as the first and second Defendants, respectively.
It will be recalled that Senator Eze had in a statement issued on Tuesday, November 9, after the PDP governorship primary election claimed he was the duly elected candidate of the PDP.
But in a swift reaction, the Enugu State Chapter of the PDP the next day, denounced his claim, insisting that only one gubernatorial primary election was held in Enugu last Monday with Hon. Ugwuanyi as the duly elected candidate.
