An Appeal Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, struck out the case filed by Prince Uche Secondus, the suspended chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, challenging the party’s national convention scheduled for Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 October, 2021.
The two-day national convention will hold at the Eagles Square in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
The three-man panel led by Justice Haruna Tsammani on Thursday adjourned the matter for continued hearing on Friday.
Delivering the judgement on Friday, Justice Gabriel Kolawole said Secondus’ suit before it was as after-thought and abuse of court process.
The court blamed him for not acting when his ward and local governments suspended him until now.
The judge urged the party to go on with the planned convention.
