The Chairman of the tribunal, Justice C. H. Ahuchaogu after hearing the application ordered the petitioners/applicants to serve the respondents through the chairman or any principal officer of the PDP in the state.
Earlier, counsel to the petitioners/applicants, Mr Ochiagha Uzor who held the brief of Mr Sunday Ameh (SAN), told the tribunal that it had been difficult to serve the various respondents with the processes.
