The Federal High Court sitting in port Harcourt has adjourned the case between PDP and Accord Party in Rivers State.
Recall that few days ago the People’s Democratic Party PDP in Rivers State Sued the Accord party, its governorship candidate Chief Dumo Lulu-Briggs and the Party’s House of Assembly candidates.
PDP alleged that the primary conducted by the Accord Party on May 28, which produced candidates for legislative seats; State and National Assembly and the Governorship candidate, did not meet the provisions of the new electoral laws.
The Accord Party counsel Abdullahi Mohammed at mentioning of the case on 29 July said “my clients served with the processes and objected to the jurisdiction of the court and it’s clear that we filled this suit out of time you know because the constitution say we have fourteen days within which we should do that and we have been challenging that PDP dose not have any standing in court because a political party can not challenge any other Political party’s primaries guarded by different constitution.”
However, the case was adjourned to 31st August in order for everyone to have a fair hearing.
