Katsina APC VS APC Akida: Court fixed new date for ruling on congress crisis 

Justice Folashade Giwa-Ogunbanjo of the Federal High Court, Abuja had further fixed the 9th of January, 2019 as new date hear the suit seeking the nullification of wards, local government and the state congresses of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Katsina State.

The judge made this pronouncement on the 5th of December in the continuation of the case before her at the instance of the defense counsel.

Two governorship aspirants, Dankani and Mainasara, who instituted the court action, are praying the court to nullify, invalidate and set aside the purported congresses claimed to have been conducted by the APC in all the wards and local government areas of Katsina State in May this year on the grounds that the APC did not comply with any known law before coming to the wrongful conclusion that officers have been elected for the wards and local governments in Katsina State.

In the suit instituted by Olanipekun, the plaintiffs are praying the court for an order restraining the two defendants from recognising any person or group of persons from parading themselves as elected ward, local government and state executives of the APC pending the conduct of valid congresses in line with the provisions of the Electoral Act and APC constitution.

Besides, the plaintiffs applied for another order to compel APC to conduct congresses for the wards, local governments and state chapter of the party and which must be observed and monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in line with the provisions of the law.

The two governorship aspirants asked the court to restrain INEC from accepting anybody or group as nominated candidate for elective office for Katsina State for 2019 until valid congresses have been conducted in a democratic manner.
