PDP crisis Sacked Ebonyi chairman, Onu heads to Supreme Court after appeal’s ruling

PDP crisis Sacked Ebonyi chairman, Onu heads to Supreme Court after appeal’s ruling. Mr. Silas Onu, the PDP’s expelled chairman in Ebonyi State, promised over the weekend to appeal the Appeal Court’s decision to invalidate the state party congress that elected him to the position.

In a statement he signed and made available to journalists in Abakaliki, the capital of Ebonyi State, Onu claimed that the Court of Appeal committed a legal error when it decided to hear the appeal and was determined to overturn the congress that elected him chairman.

Remember that Mr. Tochukwu Okorie was reinstated as the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, as the state’s substantive chairman after Mr. Silas Onu had been fired by the appellate court.

In the notice of appeal, Onu, a former party spokesperson, outlined two grounds for

Mr. Onu is therefore pleading with the supreme court to issue a decision enabling his appeal.

Mr. Onu also asked the court to issue an order restoring the trial court’s judgment from April 13, 2022, which recognized him as the legitimate party chairman for the state.

The PDP has split into two factions in the run-up to the party’s primaries, with Mr. Onu heading one and Okorie the other.

As a result, the party’s primaries produced two candidates for governor.

Ifeanyi Odii, who was generated by Onu’s factional group, was the party’s candidate, while Obinna Gba, who was created by Mr. Tochukwu Okorie, was another contender for governor.

Right now, both candidates are in court vying to be recognized as the legitimate party nominee for the governorship race in 2023.
