Court Vacates Order Stopping APC’s National Convention


The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Kubwa, Abuja, on Friday lifted an interlocutory injunction earlier issued to stop the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Convention from holding.

The judge, Bello Kawu, vacated the interlocutory order earlier made on November 18, 2021, following an application by APC’s legal team.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Mr Kawu vacated the order relying on a recent Supreme Court decision which held that a party member does not have the right to take the party to court.

An APC member, Salisu Umoru, had sued the Chairman Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe State, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), seeking an order to stop the planned convention of the party.

The judge had granted an interlocutory injunction sought by the applicant. Shuaibu Aruwa, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria had applied for an order setting aside the order.

Mr Aruwa urged the court to grant his clients’ prayer, set aside the interlocutory order and strike out the suit for lack of jurisdiction in the interest of justice.

The defence counsel added that the claimant’s counsel, Mike Enaharo-Ebah, did not file any process to counter his application.
