Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Federal High Court in Lagos on Friday has withdrawn from Ogun PDP leadership crisis.

Buba made known his intention to withdraw  from  case no. FHC/L/CS/1556/17 in the court. He declared that  his reason is hinged on a petition written against him by the defendants to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court.

The case was brought to court  by the Ogun State delegation to the PDP National Convention. The  plaintiffs  in the case are  Alhaji Adewole Adeyanju,  PDP Youth Leader in Ogun,  Daisi Akintan and Alhaji Idris Muniru,  Chief (Mrs) Tuke Omotara, Alhaji Badejo Abiodun and Otunba Kola Akinyemi, while some of the defendants include the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the PDP National Caretaker Committee and its Chairman, Alhaji Ahmed Makarfi.

The plaintiffs are asking for a  court order which will stop the involvement of  INEC in any congress organised by  PDP in respect of the  second to sixth defendants for voting into power  of any person (s) into the Executive Committee of the PDP in Ogun State.

The plaintiffs also wants the court to restrain  INEC from given recognition to  any person(s) that emerge from such congress conducted by the defendants or  other officers of the PDP until the expiration of the tenure of the present executive in May 2020.

Some protesters had distrupted activities in the court premise by carrying placards demanding for the withdrawal of the judge from the case.

Justice buba who had earlier scheduled Friday for the hearing of the case announced his withdrawal, noting that his attention has been called to the petition submitted to the Federal high court by the defendants querrying his position as the sitting judge in the case.
