Justice Okogbule Gbasam of the Degema Judicial Division, presiding over a vacation court in Port Harcourt, granted the order, pending the determination of the substantive suit.

This made the party on Wednesday to adopt its Deputy National Chairman (South), Elder Yemi Akinwonmi, as acting Chairman.

However, another court of coordinate jurisdiction in Kebbi  on Thursday restored the embattled national chairman to his position.
