The aggrieved zonal executive committee members are , in the suit , seeking a court order nullifying the 75th National Executive Committee meeting of the PDP as well as the resolutions passed at the said meeting .
The suit , marked FHC / ABJ/732 / 2017, was filed by the sacked Secretary to the PDP South - West Zonal Executive Committee , Chief Pega Otemolu, on behalf of himself and members of the dissolved executive committee .
Joined as respondents in the suit are the Independent National Electoral Commission ; the PDP ; and the Chairman of the PDP National Caretaker Committee, Ahmed Makarfi.
