The Court of Appeal, Port Harcourt division on Friday finally dismissed the suit filed by the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) embattled National Chairman, Chief Uche Secondus asking the court to suspend the party’s National Convention scheduled to take place tomorrow, October 30, 2021.
Justice Gabriel Kolawole, leading two other Justices of the appellate court dismissed the application, calling it an abuse of court process. With this dismissal, the coast is now clear for Saturday’s national convention of the party. Seondus, had asked the appellate court to stop the conduct of the convention, as going ahead with it would render the challenge of his removal in cour useless, adding that he ought to take charge of activities at the convention in his capacity as the party’s primus inter pares.

Justice Kolawole, leading a panel of three said the suspended PDP boss slept on his rights and that his resort to the court came too late in the day.

By implication, the appellate court has given its nod for the convention scheduled for Eagle Square, where preparations are already in top gear to hold as planned.

The three-man panel sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, while dismissing the interlocutory injunction described the suit before it as after-thought and abuse of court process, blaming Secondus for not acting when his ward and local governments suspended him until now, and urged the party to go on with the planned convention
