National Convention: Appeal Court To Decide PDP Fate On Thursday

The Appeal Court will on Thursday declare whether the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) will have its national convention or not.

The Appeal Court in Port Harcourt has set Thursday, October 28th, 2021 as the date for hearing and ruling on the request for Interim order of injunction filed by the party’s suspended National Chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, against the PDP and others.

Prince Uche Secondus, through his lawyer Tayo Oyetibo, has asked the court to postpone the party’s National Convention on October 30th and 31st.

He also wants Secondus to preside over the convention, which he is requesting from the court.

When the case came up in court, six other PDP members called the court’s attention to their plea for joinder, which was not opposed by Secondus’ counsel.

The appeal court’s three-person bench eventually granted their motion.

The defense attorneys, including those who joined the lawsuit, were opposed to Secondus’ counsel filing an application for an interim injunction to stop the PDP’s upcoming National Convention, and sought for more time to respond to the process.

After hearing the arguments from both sides, the three-member appeal panel led by Justice Haruna Simon Tsammani directed plaintiff’s counsel to “service the process to the defendants Counsel within twenty-four hours, while respondents counsels should react within twenty-four hours.”

He adjourned the matter to 28th of October, for hearing and possible ruling on the motion.
