The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has raised alarm over what it describes as plots by an Anambra State High Court judge to frustrate the appeal against his judgement on the PDP Anambra State Governorship Primary Election.

The party accused Justice O.A. Nwabunike of absconding with the case file on Senator Ugochukwu Uba vs PDP & Ors and violating order 16 rule 1(2) of the Anambra State Court Civil Procedure Rules 2019.

In a statement signed by the PDP National Publicity Secretary, Kola Ologbodiyan, the party stressed that despite the 180 days provided by the Constitution for hearing and determination of pre-election matters, the High Court in Anambra state hastily concluded proceedings and delivered judgement within 14 days thereby denying the defendants time to respond to the process served on them.

The party is, therefore, demanding an immediate release of the case file and all copies of the judgement delivered by Justice Nwabunike while also calling on the Chief Judge of Anambra State, Justice O.M Anyachebelu, and the National Judicial Council to urgently call Justice Nwabunike to order.
