Huhuonline.com understands that the last is yet to heard on the sacking of the Okwelieze Nwodo as chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as Justice Ruben Onuorah, the judge who issued the order, asking him to desist from parading himself as chairman of the party has been summoned by the National Judicial Commission to defend his action.    

Recall that Mr. Nwodo   was forced to obey   the court ruling,had resigned as chairman to avoid expulsion at the last NEC meeting of the PDP.    

Justice, Reuben Onuorah, in his ruling on Wednesday, January 12, 2010 , said ' Mr. Nwodo should stop functioning as chairman and enjoying any benefits from the position, pending the determination of motion on notice for interlocutory injunction.  

Our checks shows that Nwodo and Gov Sullivan Chime, had been engaged in a war of attrition, over the control of   Enugu state politics. Sources told huhuonline.com that Nwodo had insisted that he must be allowed to nominate all the aspirants for the National Assembly, if Sullivan wanted a second term in office. But this offer was rebuffed by   Sullivan Chime.    

Consequently, a suit was filed   in December, 2010, by   Mr. Collins Amalu, a registered member of the People Demoratic Party, from Ngwo-Uno ward in Enugu State .  

According to the suit (No E/449/2010), Mr. Amalu averred that Mr. Nwodo was not a bonafide member of People Democratic Party ( PDP)..  

Mr. Nwodo, who had worked as national secretary of the PDP, left the party in 2003. He returned to the Party in 2010, and was appointed chairman in June 2010.
