Twists and turns have continued to trail political situation in Enugu state. This time, a state high court has stopped the PDP from acting on a list of delegate elected during the ward and local government congress in the state.
The order is pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit on the matter
The pronouncement is sequel to an application brought by a certain Charles Okafor.
PDP is Enugu state has been divided into two camps with one loyal to Governor Sullivan Chime and the other supported by deputy president of the senate, Ike Ekweremadu.
The deep crack can be traced to the desire of the governor to hand-pick his successor and at the same time highjack a senatorial seat currently occupied by Ike Ekweremadu.
The Ekweremadu faction, led by Elder David Aja, had declared that the congress held successfully in the state, and proceeded to forward a list of delegates elected from the exercise to Abuja. But the Chime camp, led by Chief Ikeje Asogwa, insisted that there was no congress in the 260 wards in Enugu State on November 1.
The Chime faction, which also includes members of the disputed State Executive Committee of the party, is arguing that the congress did not hold due to the non-arrival of members of the electoral panel and materials from Abuja.
