PDP ignores Secondus’ threat, insists on convention
The party said the convention is key to its survival, pointing out that all its organs, caucuses, committees and sub-committees have put in their best in terms of energy, resources and time to make the convention a reality.
Secondus had, in a letter addressed to the acting national chairman of the PDP, Yemi Akinwonmi, cautioned that the party’s preparations for the convention would be an effort in futility because of the pendency of his case against the party at the Court of Appeal.
In the letter, which was written on his behalf by his lawyer, Tayo Oyetibo, Secondus pointed out that, “having been served with an application seeking to restrain the holding of its National Convention pending the determination of the appeal filed by Prince Uche Secondus, the PDP would be embarking upon a collision course with the court if it proceeds to hold the National Convention before the hearing and determination of the Application.
