Federal Court bars House of Reps from changing leadership

Breaking news report from The Will Nigeria

A Federal High Court in Abuja presided over by Justice Adeniyi Ademola has issued an order stopping the House of Representatives from changing its leadership pending the determination of a suit filed by the leadership of the embattled Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) seeking to block the move.

Justice Ademola further ordered the leadership of the House to maintain the status quo until further notice.

The ruling frustrates moves by the opposition All Progressive Congress (APC) to take over the leadership of the House following the defection of about 37 members of the PDP to it which gave it majority in the House.
