Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in Katsina State has dragged the state government to court over its plan to dissolve the 34 local government councils in the state.
In a suit filed at the state high court by the party’s solicitors, Barristers Uyi Igunma and Napoleon Idensa, the party prayed the court to place perpetual injunction restraining the defendants from dissolving, suspending or in any other way removing all or any of the 34 local government councils before the expiration of their tenure.
In a sworn affidavit to support the originating summons, the state PDP legal adviser, Barr Lawal Amah maintained that the plaintiff is a registered political party in Nigeria on which councillors were elected on the 6th of September last year.
The suit followed the announcement by the state governor, Alhaji Aminu Bello Masari in a press briefing last Thursday, indicating his administration’s intention to dissolve the local government councils.
Joined in the suit are the state Governor, the state Attorney General and state House of Assembly as defendants.
