Court Nullifies Taraba APC State Congress
Written by News Room on March 2, 2022
The All Progressives Congress (APC) has lauded High Court ruling affirming Gov. Dave Umahi, as Ebonyi governor, in spite of his defection to APC.
The state’s APC Chairman, Chief Stanley Okoro-Emegha, said this in a statement in Abakaliki on Tuesday, saying that the judiciary has proven to be the custodian of the Constitution by the landmark judgement.
Okoro-Emegha said that the judgement was anticipated as the provisions of the Constitution on the matter were clear.
Meanwhile, Justice Simon Amobeda of the Federal High Court sitting in Jalingo, the Taraba state capital, has declared the state congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as illegal and null.
This follows a suit filed by aggrieved members of the party who approached the court sighting irregularities such as violation of the party’s constitution and the amended electoral act.
