‘You are not representing PDP and therefore can only be seen, not heard’_ Judge tells Nwoko

Justice Obiora Egwuatu of the Federal High Court, Abuja, today (May 13, 2022), called to order, Barr. Uwemedimo Nwoko (SAN), the former Attorney General of Akwa Ibom State asking him to remain silent throughout the duration of the court session.

Nwoko had tried to comment on a case instituted by some aggrieved members of the PDP at the Federal High Court, Abuja with Suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/606/2022 – RT. HON. FRIDAY IWOK & 30 ORS V INEC & Anor.

The suit was filed on May 4, 2022 against the PDP Ward Congress which was conducted on April 30, 2022.

However, Nwoko’s embarrassment started when the judge noted that he had no involvement in the matter. “You are not representing PDP and therefore you can only be seen and not be heard”, the judge said.

Meanwhile, the court went ahead to restrain the PDP from taking any action that could affect or jeopardize the case before it.

It warned that any action or actions in that regard would be at the peril of the party.

The court then ordered the plaintiffs to put INEC and PDP on notice to come and show cause why the relief and prayers should not be granted on Wednesday, May 18, 2022.

PDP, it was gathered, has already been served with this order as well as other processes on the matter.
