Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has obtained an interim injunction prohibiting the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from suspending, expelling, or punishing him pending the outcome of an interlocutory injunction filed before Justice A I. Ityomyiman of the High Court sitting in Makurdi, the state capital.
In addition, Ortom obtained an interim order restraining the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from taking any action against him in the upcoming election in which he is running as the PDP candidate for the Benue North senatorial district, pending the outcome of the same interlocutory injunction filed before Justice A I. Ityomyiman.
According to the Benuepost, the injunction comes at a time when allegations of anti-party activities have been leveled against him and other G5 governors for allegedly openly campaigning for an opposition presidential candidate other than the PDP’s presidential flagbearer, Atiku Abubakar.
