Taraba State High Court Reinstates Sacked PDP Acting Chairman Following Landmark Judgment

In a groundbreaking verdict, the Taraba State High Court, situated in the capital city of Jalingo, has issued a compelling ruling, ordering the immediate reinstatement of Alhaji Inuwa Bakari as the acting chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state.

Presided over by Justice Nuhu Adi, the court judgment granted all the prayers sought by the reinstated acting chairman, Alhaji Inuwa Bakari.

Bakari was unceremoniously removed from his position by the former governor of Taraba State, Arc. Darius Dickson Ishaku, and replaced by Alhaji Abubakar Bawa, the former Special Adviser to Ishaku.

Dissatisfied with the decision made by the former governor, Bakari approached the court, seeking the nullification of Bawa’s appointment on the grounds that proper procedures outlined in the party’s constitution were not followed.

Following a lengthy proceeding, the judge ruled that Bawa’s appointment was “unconstitutional” and ordered the immediate restoration of Bakari as the acting chairman of the party.

The court directed Bakari to promptly resume his duties as the party’s acting chairman, while sternly instructing Bawa to refrain from presenting himself as the party’s chairman.

Expressing his elation over the judgment, Bakari pledged to adhere to the court’s directive by resuming his responsibilities as mandated. He urged party members to remain calm and avoid actions that could spark unrest within the party.

Barrister John Okezie, Bakari’s legal counsel, commended the judge’s efforts, affirming that justice had been rightly served in this case.

The reinstated chairman further stated that he would consult with his legal counsel to determine the subsequent steps to be taken in light of the judgment.

This landmark ruling comes shortly after the state government established a committee to address the ongoing leadership dispute within the party, indicating the significance of the court’s decision in resolving the contentious issue.
