Kashamu in trouble as court sacks suit to stop PDP’s disciplinary action against him

A move by Senator Buruji Kashamu move to escape being disciplined by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on Wednesday hit the rocks as a Federal High Court in Abuja struck out the suit he filed to stop any action against him by the party.

The party had accused the senator representing Ogun East senatorial district of involving himself in anti-party activities and referred his matter to Chief Tom Ikimi-led Disciplinary Committee of the party for appropriate action against the senator.

But in effort to escape being disciplined by the party, Kashamu in his suit argued that his referral by the PDP to the Chief Tom Ikimi-led Disciplinary Committee, among other disciplinary actions already and being planned to be taken against him, violated the orders made by the court on August 10 and September 10, 2017 in a pending suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/732/2017.

Ruling on the matter on Wednesday, Justice Nnamdi Dimgba sacked Kashamu’s suit after upholding PDP’s preliminary objection challenging its competence and validity.

The trial judge held that the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/732/2017 being an ongoing one, that for Kashamu to base his suit on it, was hasty and premature.
