Prince Uche Secondus has been restored as the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

Prince Secondus who was removed as the substantiate national chairman of the party was restored to his office by a Kebbi State high court on Thursday, August 26.

The judgment was obtained after three applicants, Yahaya Usman, Abubakar Muhammad, and Bashar Suleman filed an ex parte application dated Wednesday, August 25, at the Kebbi State High Court for an order for stay of execution of the suspension order issued by the Rivers State High Court on Monday, August 23.

The presiding judge, Nusirat Umar ordered that the execution of a previous order barring Prince Secondus from parading himself as national chairman be suspended, pending when the suit is heard and concluded.

Umar gave an order of interim injunction “staying the purported suspension of the first respondent pending the determination of the substantive motion on notice No. KB/HC/M.170/2021 now pending before this honourable court”.

The Judge also gave an “order granting leave to the first respondent (Uche Secondus) to continue exercising all the constitutional powers of the office of Chairman of PDP (second defendant ) as enshrined in both 1999 Constitution of Nigeria as amended and the Peoples Democratic Party’s constitution pending the hearing and final determination of applicant’s motion on notice.”

The leadership crisis in PDP deepened in the last few days, with two of Mr. Secodus’ deputies laying claim to his seat.
