Court okays PDP convention, dismisses Secondus’ suit

The Court of Appeal, Port Harcourt Division, on Friday, dismissed a suit by the suspended national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Secondus, praying it to stop the party’s convention scheduled to hold on Saturday and Sunday.

After Friday’s ruling, the opposition PDP can now proceed with the elective national convention as scheduled.

The panel of three judges led by 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.

“By the result of this decision, the 6th Respondent (PDP) is empowered on the authority of this court’s decision to convene and to hold its National Convention without let or hindrance.

“There shall be no order for costs,” the enrolled order of the appellate court read in part.

“The appellant’s notice of motion re-filed on October 27, 2021 Court of Appeal fails and it is hereby dismissed.”

Mr 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 30 and 31.

Those sued as respondents to his Appeal are: Ibeawuchi Alex, Dennis Amadi, Emmanuel Stephen, Emezurike Onouha,Godwin Manfred, PDP, Suleiman Nazif, Dan Orbih, Solomon Ogbonna, Uche Minikwu, and Samuel Anyanwu.
