A chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Enugu State has urged a Federal High Court sitting in the FCT, Abuja, to stop Barr. Ugo Agballa from parading himself as the chairman of the party in Enugu State.

Saga Gist had reported that Agballa emerged as a factional chairman in one of the parallel congresses held in Enugu State.

The plaintiff, Uduji Kingsley, in a suit with number: FHC/ABT/65/1318/2021, is now praying the Court to bar Agballa from parading himself as the State chairman of APC in Enugu State.

He told the court that the purported election that produced the defendant was illegal, null and void, and contravened Section 85(3)of the Electoral Act, as well as the constitution of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as amended in 2014.

The plaintiff is asking the court to determine whether a person who did not participate during the ward Congresses could participate in the October 16 State Congress in contravention of the provisions of the constitution of the Party as amended in 2014.

He is praying the court to determine: “Whether the 1st defendant can validly register as a member of the 3rd Defendant in July 2021 in Enugu State contrary to the article 9.4 of the Party’s constitution and also the 2021 3rd Defendant’s membership registration guidelines.

“Whether the 2nd Defendant or any person however described in Enugu State can validly register the 1st Defendant as a member of the 3rd Defendant after March 31st, 2021 closure of the membership registration of the 3rd Defendant.”

The plaintiff sought the court to declare that: “That the 1st defendant cannot validly contest the position of the chairman or any other position however described in the October 16, 2021 State Congress of All Progressives Congress, APC.

“A declaration that the 1st Defendant cannot participate in the October 16, 2021 State Congress of the 3rd Defendant as it contravenes Section 85(3) of the electoral act as well as the membership registration guidelines of the 3rd Defendant”

“A Declaration that 2nd Defendant or any person however described in Enugu State, cannot register the 1st Defendant as a member of the 3rd Defendant after March 31st closure of the membership of the 3rd Defendant as it contravenes article 2, 7, 9.1 and 9.3 of the 3rd Defendants constitution.

“A declaration that 2nd, 3rd and 4th defendants cannot validly recognise the 1st Defendant as the Enugu State chairman of the All Progressives Congress APC as it contravenes article 2, 7, 9.1, 9.3 and 7 of the constitution of the 3rd Defendant.

“A declaration that the purported selection/election/declaration of the 1st Defendant as the duly elected chairman or Officer of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Enugu State contravenes the 2, 7, 9.1, 9.4, 12.7, 31.1 of the Constitution of the 3rd Defendant.”
