The Acting National Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus, has been given 14 days within which to vacate the office.

The order was handed down on Tuesday by a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, following a suit filed by a former Special Adviser on Political Matters to former President Goodluck Jonathan, Ahmed Gulak.

The court said based on the arguments preferred by Gulak, Secondus is occupying the position of the Acting National Chairman of the party illegally.

Secondus, however, said he would appeal the judgment.

His counsel, Paul Isaiah, said the party will appeal the judgement.

He said: “We are going to appeal this judgement.

“Apart from the appeal, we are also going to file a stay of execution of the judgement because the National Convention of the party is in March next year.”

Justice Hussein Baba in his judgement held that the position of the Acting National Chairman of the party is zoned to the North East and therefore cannot be occupied by Secondus, who is from the South South.

In the suit, Gulak said by the provision of the PDP constitution and its zoning principle, he was the proper person to replace the former Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Muazu, who hailed from the North East geopolitical zone.
