Politics Defecting PDP lawmakers accuse party of preempting court’s decision- The Nation

The 79 legislators, who sued the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and leaders of the National Assembly over threats to declare their seats vacant, accused the party yesterday of exhibiting foreknowledge of the outcome of the case.

They frowned at the utterances of the party’s lawyer, Joe Gadzama (SAN), which, they argued, betrayed the possibility that the party was already aware that the court would decide the case against them.

The lawmakers’ lawyer, Mahmoud Magaji (SAN), expressed the fear when the case came up yesterday at the Federal High Court, Abuja that statements by Gadzama (SAN), lawyer to the PDP and its former Chairman Bamanga Tukur, were “conclusive and preemptive of the outcome of the court’s decision in the case”.
