The court decision comes after Mr. Chinedum Nwole and two other party members filed a lawsuit challenging Chief Emenike’s candidacy.

By participating in the primary election, both Emenike and the APC State Chairman, Chief Donatus Nwakpa, violated article 9.3 of the APC constitution, according to Justice Chijoke.

As a result, he declared their participation in the party’s ward, local council, state, and national conventions to be illegal.

On the basis of the existing court order, the judge also ordered the APC National Working Committee to stop dealing with the duo.

“By virtue of the first defendant (Emenike) being suspended as a member of the second defendant (APC), the first defendant cannot participate in any form whatsoever in the activities of the second defendant, including the scheduled ward, local government, state, and national congresses of the second defendant due to take place between 2021 and 2022,” the ruling stated.
