The Court of Appeal, Port Harcourt Division, has granted the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, the leave to proceed with its elective national convention scheduled for October 30.
This is as it dismissed a suit by suspended national chairman of the party, Uche Secondus, calling for a stoppage.
The panel of three judges led by Justice Haruna Tsammani found no merit in Mr Secondus’ appeal saying he voluntarily relinquished his office since he did not challenge his removal at ward and local government levels.
Secondus had filed the suit marked: CA/PH/339/2021 seeking, among others, to restrain the PDP from conducting its national convention which is scheduled to hold in Abuja on October 30th and 31st.
