R-APC drags APC to Court over national convention
The internal crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress, APC, deepened yesterday, as the Buba Galadima led faction approached the Abuja Division of a Federal High Court, praying it to nullify the National Convention the party held on June 23.
Aside Galadima, other leaders of the Reformed All Progressive Congress, R-APC, that are behind the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1734/18, are Kazeem Afegbua (Edo State), Nicholas Asuzu (Anambra) and Alhaji Hadi Ametuo (Kogi).
The plaintiffs claimed that they instituted the action on behalf of all other National Officers, States Chairmen and State Executives of the APC. They urged the court to restrain the former governor of Edo State, Adams Oshiomhole and 52 others, from parading themselves as officers of the party or performing any function in such capacity, as their elections and swearing in as officers of APC was invalid, null and void.
Besides Oshiomhole and 52 other officers of the party that emerged through the disputed convention, the APC itself and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, were listed as the 53rd and 54th defendants in the suit.
