Dagogo sues PDP, INEC over exclusion

Embattled member of the House of Representatives Farah Dagogo has sued the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to court following his exclusion from the list of governorship aspirants in Rivers State.

The lawmaker and governorship aspirant, who is being detained at the Port Harcourt Correctional Centre, is standing trial for conspiracy to felony and cultism at the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt.

Though he pleaded not guilty, he is yet to be granted bail.

Dagogo, in a motion on notice, filed at the Federal High Court, Abuja, is seeking an order of interlocutory injunction restraining PDP from using any list of aspirants without his name to conduct the May 26 primary election pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.

He is also seeking an order restraining INEC from accepting any candidate, who might emerge from the primary election conducted without his participation.
