The crisis ricking the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may be far from being over as it emerged on Tuesday that the sacked party's National Secretary, Olagunsoye Oyinlola may not be returning back to his office in the near future.
Specifically, a Federal High Court had on January 14 removed Oyinlola from office after which the party's National Working Committee (NWC) led by Alhaji Bamanga Tukur based on a legal opinion by Chief Joe Gadzama (SAN) directed that in obedience to the orders of the court the Deputy National Secretary , Solomom Onwe be sworn-in in acting capacity.
Oyinlola had gone to the Court of Appeal Abuja Division to challenge the Judgment of an Abuja Federal High Court and seek to stay the execution of the court's order.
But the party's lead counsel, Joe Kyari-Gadzama (SAN), said the application for a stay of execution slated for hearing on Thursday may not be on the plate now since according to him it has been overtaken by events.
His words "the stay is slated for hearing on Thursday which ironically is a public holiday, and even at that the action which the application sought to stay its execution has been overtaken by events as an Acting National Secretary has already been sworn-in.
"So what I think we would do is to concentrate on the appeal which is before the Court of Appeal as the stay of execution could be said to be technically dead" he added.
