The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, on Wednesday restrained some executive members of the All Progressives Congres (APC) from taking any steps to disrupt the meeting of the party’s National Executive Committee, convened by the party’s National Working Committee, scheduled for March 17.
Those affected by the order are: National Legal Adviser of the All Progressives Congress, Babatunde Ogala; the National Publicity Secretary, Lanre Issa-Onilu; and Waziri Bulama.
Justice S. U . Bature gave the order following an ex parte application by a member of the party, Mustapha Salihu.
The court also made an order “compelling the 4 th defendant (APC) to give effect to the resolution of the National Working Committee convening the National Executive Committee meeting of the 4th defendant (APC) scheduled for 17 th March 2020 or any subsequent date pending the hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice already filed.”
The judge granted leave to the applicant to serve originating summons on Ogala, Issa-Onilu, Bulama and the APC “by substituted means, to wit: by serving same on any adult at the office of the Deputy National Secretary of the 4th defendant at the APC National Secretariat and deem same as proper service.”
Justice Bature then adjourned the matter to March 20 to hear the Motion on Notice.
