He said he instituted the suit because of the need to put the PDP back on the track.
He said the party’s constitution made it clear that somebody from the North East where Muazu hails from should be appointed to replace him.
Gulak regretted that despite this constitutional provision, Secondus has refused to initiate the process for the fulfillment of that provision.
The suit filed at Court No. 4 of the FCT High Court comes up for hearing on November 25, 2015.
