July 30, (THEWILL) – A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has restrained the All Progressives Congress (APC) from conducting its Saturday’s Congresses in Imo State, pending the hearing of a suit brought before it by Okey Anyikwa.
Anyikwa is APC chairman of Ideato South Local Government Area.
He had approached the court for an injunction restraining the APC from going ahead with Saturday’s congresses because of the judgement of the Appeal Court that upheld the tenure of the State Exco elected in 2018.
Justice Valentine Oriji threatened to invalidate the outcome of congresses if the party disregards the position of the Court.
Oriji, had after Friday’s proceeding, ordered that all action regarding the APC congresses in the state should be stayed, pending the hearing of the Application slated for August 10.
