Rotimi-AmaechiGovernor Rotimi Amaechi of Rivers State got temporary reprieve Friday when a Rivers High Court sitting in Port Harcourt restrained the Peoples Democratic Party from taking any further action against him pending the hearing of a substantive suit challenging his suspension from the party.

The National Working Committee of the PDP suspended Amaechi on Monday citing his refusal to rescind his decision to recall the sacked Chairman of Obio/Akpor Local Government Council, Mr. Timothy Nsirim, and 17 councillors.

However, the governor, who was consistently maintained that the council heads were sacked by the State Assembly, headed to court to challenge his suspension from the party.

In his ruling, Justice Emmanuel Ogbuji issued a directive stopping the PDP from going beyond Amaechi’s suspension until the matter was heard.

Ogbuji’s order follows a preliminary application brought before the court by the governor’s legal team led by Mr. Akin Olubunmi (SAN).

Also summoning the PDP to appear before it on June 6, 2013, the court instructed the party to maintain the status quo in the matter pending the hearing of the substantive suit brought by the governor.

Ogbuji, however, directed the Governor to serve the necessary court processes on the PDP by pasting them on the walls of the party in Abuja and publishing them in national newspapers.
