- The All Progressives Congress has recorded a victory in suits challenging the constitution of the party's caretaker committee
- Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja disclosed why the legal action filed by the plaintiffs were struck out
- The dissolution of the Adams Oshiomhole-led working committee of the party was part of the subject of litigation
FCT, Abuja - Legal actions seeking to sack Governor Mai Mala Buni-led's caretaker committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC) have been struck out by the Federal High Court in Abuja.
The suits had prayed the court to reverse the dissolution of the Oshiomhole-led National Working Committee (NWC) and declare the Buni-led NWC unlawful.
The Nation reported that the court in two rulings on Tuesday, June 22, declared that the plaintiffs in both suits, marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/736/2020 and FHC/ABJ/CS/1589/2021, lacked legal right to institute their cases against the party.
Justice Taiwo faults the legal actions
The presiding judge, Justice Taiwo Taiwo, stated:
“I am of the well considered view that issues raised by the plaintiffs are not justiceable. They are issues of internal affairs of a political party.
“It is sheer waste of time and there is no reason to consider the substantive matter.''
He then struck out both cases.
Presidency dismisses calls for Buhari's resignation
Meanwhile, the presidency has reacted to the calls in different quarters for the resignation of President Muhammadu Buhari over the incessant killings and kidnappings in the country.
The Punch reported that the special adviser to the president on political matters, Babafemi Ojudu, on Tuesday, June 22, said despite the calls, the president would complete his tenure unblemished.
Ojudu said when Buhari is through, he would hand over to another apostle of his who would consolidate on his achievement.
