Court strikes out suits challenging dissolution of APC NWC

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has struck out two separate suits challenging the dissolution of the National Working Committee of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The first suit was filed by a chieftain of the party, Mr. Hilliard Eta, while the second was instituted by a former APC Youth leader in Abia state, Mr. Kalu Agu.

Both suits had sought an order of court on the legality or otherwise of the June 17, 2020, National Executive Committee meeting which dissolved the NWC, and appointed a National Caretaker Committee led by the Governor of Yobe State, Mai-Mala Buni.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Taiwo Taiwo, held that the separate plaintiffs lacked the locus standi to institute the legal action.

Ruling on the preliminary objections filed by the defendants, Justice Taiwo held that the plaintiffs did not show nor prove how the dissolution of the NWC on June 17, 2020, by 16 out of 20 members of the APC National Executive Community infracted on their civil rights and obligation more than any other member of the party.
