Cosmas Ndukwe, a former deputy speaker , Abia state house of assembly and commissioner for trade and investment has approached a federal high court in Abuja seeking to stop the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) presidential primary.
The PDP presidential primary is scheduled to take place on May 28.
Ndukwe filed an ex parte motion marked FHC/ABJ/CS/508/2022, through his lawyer, Paul Erokoro, on Thursday.
He asked the court to stop the PDP presidential primary election because the party has not been zoned its ticket to the south-east.
But Kalu Agu Kalu, counsel to the PDP who was in court, challenged the motion and asked the judge, Donatus Okorowo, not to grant the request of the plaintiff.
After considering the argument of the PDP lawyer, the judge fixed May 5 for hearing, during which the PDP is expected to show cause why the ex parte motion should not be granted.
