Court Upholds Pretty Okafor’s Election





A National industrial court sitting in Lagos has authenticated the legality and legitimacy of Pretty Okafor’s election as president of PMAN.

This was made known in a statement by PMAN Secretary General, Dr. Kenny George that the court dismissed a suit filed by veteran musician Chris Mba and a body that goes by the aegis, PMAN Caretaker Committee challenging the legality of the pretty Okafor election.
George, however pleaded with aggrieved members to embrace peace by returning to the union as ‘the new executive is poised to bring good times for musicians and usher in an era of economic prosperity for our dear country, Nigeria.’
The statement reads thus:

“The motion filed by one Chris Mba on behalf of himself and members of an illegal body purportedly called PMAN Caretaker Committee in Suit no. NICN/LA/632/2016 was today 11th November 2016 dismissed by Hon. Justice B.B. Kanyip of National Industrial Court Lagos Division. While hearing the application seeking to set aside the recent election which produced Mr. Pretty Okafor as President, Sunny Neji 1st Vice President, Zakky Azzay 2nd Vice President and Tolu Obey Fabiyi as National Treasurer respectively among others, the presiding Judge Hon. Justice B.B. Kanyip held that in the absence of any law empowering the Hon Minister of Labor and Employment, Dr Chris Ngige and  the Registrar of Trade Union Mrs. Mborgu to appoint a Caretaker Committee to run and manage the affairs of a registered Trade Union like PMAN, that the application lacks merit and was therefore dismissed accordingly.
“By this development the legitimacy, legality and authenticity of the Current PMAN executive led by Mr. Pretty Okafor as President which was elected at the last PMAN Biennial National Delegates Conference held on the 4th October 2016 in Lagos is no more in question and therefore stands on a sound legal footing.
Therefore, all PMAN aggrieved members are hereby enjoined to seize this opportunity to embrace peace and concord by returning back to the Union as the ruling of the court is victory for truth and justice for all, especially now that the new executive is poised to bring good times for musicians and usher in an era of economic prosperity for our dear country, Nigeria.”
