The National Youth Movement of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has protested against an alleged plot to use the Federal High Court to scuttle the rescheduled national convention of the party.
The youths, baring placards with several inscriptions on Wednesday staged the protest outside the premises of the Federal High Court in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The National Director of the movement, Mr Ohazuruike Tochukwu, told journalists that they were at the court to submit a petition to the Chief Judge of the Federal High Court, Justice Ibrahim Auta.
He urged Justice Auta to intervene, adding that the matter before the court had already been determined by a similar court in Port Harcourt and maintained that dissatisfied parties could only go on appeal.
The petition indicated that multiple cases were instituted by several parties in various divisions of the Federal High Court.
