The plaintiffs failed to show or prove how the dissolution of the NWC on June 17, 2020 by 16 out of 20 members of the APC NEC infringed on their civil rights and obligations more than any other member of the party, according to the preliminary objections filed by the defendants.

 

The court stated, “There must be a link between a plaintiff and the cause of action.”
