Gbajabiamila Expected to Appear in PDP's Suit against Dogara
Justice Okon Abang of the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court has ordered that hearing notice be issued to Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, to appear in court for a suit seeking the sack of former Speaker, Yakubu Dogara.
Galaxy's Godfrey Eshiemoghie reports that hearing on the matter was adjourned till the 9th of March at the instance of the PDP which has instituted the lawsuit along with its Bauchi State Chairman, Hamza Akuyam.
The PDP through its counsel, Chris Uche (SAN) Thursday said Gbajabiamila had refused to be served the court processes even though he has been listed as one of the respondents in the suit.
The plaintiffs are asking the court to, among others, declare that Dogara has ceased to be a member of the National Assembly from the date he defected to the APC.
But Dogara's lawyer told journalists that Dogara is now without a party, confirming the submission of the APC.
Those sued alongside Dogara and Gbajabiamila are the Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the APC.
