Court has delivered judgment on suits challenging dissolution of APC NWC.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja dismissed two separate lawsuits seeking the dissolution of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Nigeria’s ruling party, on Tuesday, June 22, Ejes Gist Naija News reports.
According to this online news outlet, the first complaint was filed by a party chieftain, Hilliard Eta, while the second claim was brought by Kalu Agu, a former APC Youth Leader in Abia State.
Both lawsuits sought a court ruling determining the legitimacy or otherwise of the NEC meeting on June 17, 2020, which disbanded the NWC and installed a National Caretaker Committee led by Yobe State Governor Mai-Mala Buni.
Ejes Gist NaijaNews gathered that Justice Taiwo ruled, the individual plaintiffs lacked locus standi to bring the lags action.
Court ruling on the APC NWC suits
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.”
