Secondus said the counsel is important because of his pending appeal against the judgment of a Rives State High, Degema, which prevented him from operating as chairman of the opposition party.

The embattled PDP chairman, in a letter by his lawyer, Tayo Oyetibo, and addressed to the acting chairman of the opposition party, Yemi Akinwonmi, said it will be improper to hold the convention, pending the hearing and decision of his appeal.

The Rivers High Court had in its judgment in a case brought before it by some members of the PDP in the state stopped the PDP chairman from conducting the function of his words.

However, Secondus, in the letter dated October 21, said the party has already been served with the notice of appeal, going ahead with the convention, which would amount to a concussion course with the court.
