The Supreme Court has struck out a suit filed against the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), to enforce the party’s Zoning and Rotatory Policy ahead of the 2023 Presidential Election.
The Court on Friday, in a unanimous judgement delivered by Justice Adamu Jauro, struck out the suit on the ground of lack of Jurisdiction to entertain it.
A Presidential aspirant of the PDP and former Deputy Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Hon Cosmos Ndukwe had filed the suit against the party, praying for an order to compel the party to uphold the Zoning and Rotatory policy of the party.
Hon Ndukwe had prayed to the Court to order PDP to Zone the nomination of its Presidential candidate to the South East Geo-Political Zone of the Country.
However, Justice Jauro held that the suit is not Justiciable, on the ground that the nomination of candidates for Election is an Internal affair of Political parties.
