National Convention: I never took PDP to court

Reconcile all interests, Lagos PDP advises Arapaja

A disqualified aspirant for a position in the national leadership of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Chief Okey Muo-Aroh has denied ever taking the opposition party to court.

Newsbreakers reported that Adamawa Governor,  Ahmadu Fintiri, who is the chairman of the convention said Muo-Aroh, a lawyer, said he was part of those who took the party to court without utilising the internal mechanism to address their grievances.

Mu-Aroh, who claimed to have always been part of the legal team defending the PDP in court cases vowed to challenge his disqualification at the Screening Appeal panel set up by the party to address such issues.

“I have never taken the PDP to court since I joined the party in 1998. On the other hand, I have been part of the legal team that defended the PDP in many court cases in the past, especially in Anambra state.

“As a matter of fact, I was a member of the team of lawyers that defended Valentine Ozigbo, the PDP governorship candidate for the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state. We won the case for the PDP candidate and I was one of the lawyers that defended our candidate and the party at the Supreme Court.

“Are those that disqualified me now penalising me for always defending the PDP in court? And to add to my injury, the PDP has never paid me one Naira for all the court appearances I have made for them in the past. This is injustice and I am going to challenge it”.
