Suit To Compel PDP To Zone Presidency To South East Gets Dismissed By Supreme Court

Published:

The Supreme Court has struck out a suit instituted against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), seeking to enforce the zoning and rotatory policy in the 2023 presidential election.

In a unanimous judgement delivered by Justice Adamu Jauro on Friday, the court struck out the suit on the ground of lack of jurisdiction to entertain it.

A presidential aspirant of PDP and former Deputy Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Cosmos Ndukwe, had instituted the suit against his party, praying for an order of the court to compel it to uphold the zoning and rotatory policy of the party.

Specifically, the presidential aspirant sought for an order of the court to compel PDP to zone the nomination of its presidential candidate to the south-east geo-political zone of the country.

However, Justice Jauro dismissed the suit on the ground that the nomination of candidates for election was an internal affair of political parties.
