Ahead of tomorrow’s ward Congress of the All Progressives Congress, APC, aggrieved members of the party in Enugu State have dragged the party to court.
The plaintiffs in the suit are Akpagu Jude, Uzochi George, Agu Chinenye Vivian and Kenneth Ozoemenam.
Joined as defendants in the suit are the APC, its acting national chairman, Mai Mala Buni, former Senate President, Ken Nnamani and the chairman of the party in Enugu State, Dr. Ben Nwoye.
NEWSMEN confirmed from the plaintiffs that the suit was served in Nwoye at the party’s Secretariat in Enugu shortly after the stakeholders’meeting held earlier in the day.
They are asking the court to void anything that has to do with the Congress, alleging among other things that after paying for delegate forms, none was issued to them.
When contacted, Nwoye confirmed receiving a motion on notice with regards to the suit filed before the Enugu State High Court.
He, however, expressed anger that party members could take such step without exhausting the internal mechanisms. More to come…
