Court Adjourns Hearing of Secondus’s Application Seeking To Stop PDP Convention


The Court of Appeal in Port Harcourt, Rivers State on Tuesday adjourned the hearing of arguments on an application seeking to stop the Peoples Democratic Party from conducting its national convention.

A panel of three justices led by Justice Haruna Tsammani adjourned the hearing till 12pm on Thursday to allow new parties who applied to join in the case to make their contributions.

It is, however, not clear if the court will make any pronouncement on the adjourned date.

In its bid to resolve the internal crisis that rocked the Uche Secondus led National Working Committee of the party, the PDP had announced a special convention to elect a set of new national officers.

The convention is scheduled to take place on October 30 and 31 in Abuja.

But this decision by the party did not go well with Secondus – the suspended PDP National Chairman – who believes the conduct of the convention will abruptly end his tenure that is due to expire in December.

He later filed an application as part of the processes in the ongoing litigation over his suspension from the party, to stop the PDP from proceeding with the convention as planned.
