Ex-minister flays frequent court injunctions in PDP
A former minister of State for Works, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, has bereted politicians for running to the judiciary at the slightest provocation to obtain all kinds of injunctions which are capable of truncating the country’s democracy.
Prince Adeyeye, who represents the South-West in the Sen. Ahmed Makarfi-led national caretaker committee of the PDP, in an interactive session with journalists in Port Harcourt, over the weekend, said if not checked, the trend could destroy democracy and make Nigerians lose hope in the electoral process.
He said: “There have been interim injunctions upon interim injunctions by one man, just to dissolve the party. It is wrong for people to use the court to force themselves into the party. We wish to draw the consciousness of the Nigerian journalists into this matter, otherwise the Nigerian democracy will be in jeopardy.
“The idea of using the court to force people into party or take control of a party is something I have never seen before,” he said.
