Appeal Court dismisses Secondus’ lawsuit, grants PDP leave to proceed with national convention

The Port Harcourt Division of the Court of Appeal has dismissed a suit by suspended national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Uche Secondus.

The PDP was also granted leave to proceed with its elective national convention scheduled for October 30 and October 31.

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.
