Supreme Court Takes Final Decision On Demand For PDP To Zone Its Presidential Ticket To The South

A suit seeking to force the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to zone its 2023 presidential ticket to the southern region has been struck out by the Supreme Court.

The unanimous ruling of the apex court was handed down on Friday in a judgment delivered by Justice Adamu Jauro.

According to the judgment, the Supreme Court lacks jurisdiction to entertain the suit.

Naija News understands the suit was instituted against the PDP by a presidential aspirant of the party, and former Deputy Speaker of Abia State House of Assembly, Cosmos Ndukwe.

He pleaded with the court to order the PDP to zone the nomination of its presidential candidate to the south-east geo-political zone of the country.

However, Justice Jauro of the Supreme Court ruled that the nomination of candidates for election was an internal affair of political parties, hence the suit was struck out.
