The fate of the 18 members of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) National Working Committee (NWC) members, whose election the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) said was not properly conducted, will be decided tomorrow by Justice S.B. Belgore of the Abuja High Court.
Already, the PDP national secretariat has been enveloped in uncertainty and palpable fear over the expected court determination of the fate of the affected NWC members.
Also, the court ruling is coming on the heels of plans by PDP governors to hold a mini-convention to regularize the INEC report.
If the court upholds the INEC report, then, only the National Chairman of the PDP, Alhaji Bamanga Tukur will be the only NWC member left; a situation that makes the holding of the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the party inevitable.
The INEC report listed the election of the single candidates whose election by affirmation was unacceptable to it to include the deputy national chairman; Dr. Sam Sam Jaja, National Organizing Secretary; Abubakar Mustapha, National Youth Leader; Alhaji Garba Chiza, Deputy National Youth Leader, Dennis Alonge Niyi, Deputy National Auditor, Senator Umar Ibrahim, Deputy National Woman, Hanatu Ulam, National Woman Leader; Kema Chikwe, Deputy National Organizing Secretary, Okechukwu Nnadozie, Deputy National Treasurer, Claudus Inengas, National Legal Adviser, Victor Kwom, National Publicity Secretary, Olisa Metuh and the Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Binta Goje.
