No Thaw in Oyo APC Crisis as Court Adjourns Sitting
The last might not have been heard of the leadership crisis in the All Progressives Congress APC in Oyo State as the Federal High Court sitting in Ibadan adjourned sitting on a case filed before Hon. Justice Uche Nma Agomoh till Tuesday 21st of June.
The case for hearing on a matter brought before it by a chieftain of the party in Oyo state, Alhaji Kayode Adanla was against the national leadership of the party, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the Oyo State chapter of the APC, state chairman of the party and five others as co-defendants.
The suit marked FHC/IB/CS/56/2022 is asking the court to among other things look into the controversies surrounding the election, appointment, and composition of executive members of the Oyo State chapter.
Also, the appellant filed an application for an order of injunction restraining the respondents, particularly the 3rd, 6th, 7th & 8th respondents from parading themselves as chairman and members in Oyo State pending the determination of the substantive suit.
In her ruling, Hon. Justice Uche Nma Agomoh said that the court would determine the jurisdiction or otherwise to entertain the matter.
The claimant/applicant, Alhaji Kayode Adanla is approaching the court to determine whether the first defendant along with his officials was right to have removed his name from the list of validly elected officials of the party from the state Congress of APC held at the Liberty Stadium on the 30th of October, 2021, where he claimed to have been unanimously elected and returned as the state organizing secretary of the party in the said election.
