PDP urges court to declare APC convention illegal.
Written by News Room on March 26, 2022
The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has instituted a suit before the Federal High Court in Abuja, seeking among others, a declaration that the March 26 national convention of the All Progressive Congress (APC) is illegal.
The PDP also wants the court to issue an order de-registering the APC as a political party on the grounds that it allegedly failed to meet the requirements of sections 222(a), 223(b) and 225 of the Constitution.
In a suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/389/2022 filed for the PDP by its lawyer, Samuel Irabor, the party argued that by a certified true copy of the list of APC’s current leadership it obtained from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), the party (APC) is being run by a 13 members Executive Committee, whose members fall below the number stipulated in Section 223 of the Constitution.
