A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has fixed judgment for May 31 in the suit filed by Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike to restrain the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) from either suspending or expelling him from the party.
Justice James Omotosho fixed the date at the resumed hearing of the case on Monday.

Listed as respondents in the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/139/2023 are the PDP, its National Chairman, Iyorchia Ayu; National Secretary of PDP, Senator Samuel Anyanwu and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Wike’ lawyer, Joshua Musa (SAN) told the court today (Monday) that his client’s fundamental right to freedom of association was being breached, following alleged threat by the respondents to suspend and subsequently expel him from the party (PDP).
