Some Aggrieved Members Of APC Head To Court To Stop Proposed National Convention

The crises rocking the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) seems to be difficult to resolve, as some aggrieved members of the party have dragged the Governor MAI MALA BUNI-led Caretaker and Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) before a Federal High Court in Abuja over plans to hold a National Convention of the party proposed to hold in February.

This comes just as a meeting has been slated for tomorrow, Sunday, January 9 between President BUHARI /others and APC governors under the aegis of Progressives Governors Forum in Abuja to discuss issues relating to the National Convention of the party.

The plaintiffs, SULEIMAN DIMAS USMAN, MUHAMMED SHEHU, SAMAILA ISAHAKA, IDRIS ISAH and AUDU EMMANUEL, joined the APC, the CECPC chairman and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as defendants in the suit dated January 4, 2022.

The plaintiffs are asking Court to grant an order, restraining the CECPC from going ahead with the conduct of the National Convention.

Brave Views that, the suit numbered FHC/ ABJ/CS/3/2022, the plaintiffs, through their lawyer, OLUSOLA OJO, are praying the court for an order to stop the convention, on the grounds that state congresses are yet to be completed in all the 36 states of the country.

Already, some are demanding that BUNI should resign.

In the meantime, the PDP is not resting on its oars as the PDP have reportedly zoned it presidential candidate to the North despite the fact that its National Chairman comes from the North.

Will the APC still win the presidential election in 2023 with all the uncertainties around the party?
