Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court, Abuja has asked the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to suspend its National Convention fixed for Wednesday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State.
Abang gave the order late Monday afternoon while hearing the suit filed to determine who is the authentic National Chairman of the party between Senator Ali Modu Sheriff and Senator Ahmed Makarfi.
Abang had in an earlier judgement sacked Makarfi as the National Chairman of the party.
But Makarfi swiftly filed an appeal to quash the ruling.
His faction is organising the convention in Port Harcourt.
Sheriff, however, insists he remains the national chairman, warning that any convention conducted without his approval is null and void.
