The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday, issued an order restraining the pro-Oshiomhole National Working Committee from obstructing the proposed March 17, meeting to be conducted by the All Progressives Congress (APC) Emergency National Executive Committee (NEC).
The court under the aegis of Justice S.U Bature, granted an interim order restraining Babatunde Ogala – National legal adviser, Lanre Issa-Onilu – National publicity Secretary and Waziri Bulama – National secretary.
It was gathered that the party’s national Vice Chairman, North East, Comrade Salihu Mustapha, filed a motion ex-parte against Babatunde Ogala, Lanre Issa-Onilu, Waziri Bulama and the All Progressives Congress with the view of compelling them to the resolution of the NWC convening the NEC of APC scheduled for 17th March, 2020.
However, the Pro-Oshiomhole party members who are also part of the NWC vehemently rejected that 17th March emergency National executive committee meeting, describing it as Illegal, while alleging that the convener lacks the authority to summon the meeting.
On the contrary, the court order, therefore, restrains the defendant from taking any action that is capable of disrupting the NEC meeting of the All Progressives Congress by National Working Committee members scheduled for 17th March, 2020. This also applies if in any case a subsequent date is chosen pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice already filed.
