One Strong Court Case Against PDP That Might Prevent The Party From Holding Convention

As a Nigerian, one should not be too concerned and worried about rifts between different camps of political parties. Internal politics of political parties is a struggle for power and control of the party machinery which is what democracy is all about at the end there would be resolutions that would favor some and make some still angry.

According to a report by Daily Trust, the former National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has asked the leading opposition party to stop making any moves towards the conduct of its National Convention which has been scheduled by PDP on hold on October 30 and 31, 2021. The application has been served on all the respondents in the appeal. Recall that Secondus' Chairmanship was, inter alia, restrained from performing the functions of the office of National Chairman of the PDP on 10 September 2021, by the High Court in Port Harcourt, but he has appealed and entered against the judgment at the Court of Appeal, in Port Harcourt.

Secondus has a good case that may favor him. His matter is different from that of Oshiomhole because, when Oshiomhole was suspended, he did not challenge it until he was sued for being under suspension. In the Secondus case, the court suspended him before his ward did. He might win in the court of law and therefore remain as the Chairman of the party, which according to the party constitution has the sole power to conduct a national convention.

It has also been rumored that some party stewards in the Peoples Democratic Party are looking for a way to return the former chairman because of some political benefit they will get. Although with the above-mentioned court case, the PDP might not be able to hold its party convention.
