Court orders PDP defectors to vacate seat at House of Reps

A Federal High Court in Abuja has asked thirty-seven former members of the PDP to resign their seats at the House of Representatives for defecting to the opposition APC.

The court perpetually restrained the legislators from effecting any leadership change in the assembly.

Delivering judgment in a matter brought by PDP requesting that the legislators should not be allowed to take part in the activities of the assembly, the presiding judge, Justice Adeniyi Ademola held that the lawmakers no longer have any business, morally and legally in the assembly.

He said they should honourably resign from their seats as members of the House of Representatives, having moved to another political party while their tenure is yet to expire.

Justice Ademola explained that it is clear and unambiguous that the defendants were sponsored by the PDP and won the election on its platform.
