Court restrains Yobe Gov, Buni from acting as APC caretaker chairman

An Asaba High Court has issued an order restraining on Yobe governor, Mai Mala Buni and other members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) from parading themselves as members of the party’s national caretaker committee.

In a ruling by Onome Marshal Umukoro, the judge, the APC local government congress scheduled for September 4 in Delta state was also put on hold.

Delta State APC deputy chairman, Elvis Ayomanor had led other officials of the state party to court following the July 10, 2021 controverted ward congress, which many members of the party claimed was hijacked by certain elements within the party in the state.

In the motion ex parte, the claimants/applicants through their lawyer, Daubry Ebipade Richard, prayed the court to grant the seven-point reliefs sought on the grounds that going ahead with the local government congress in the state will cause more damage.

They sought “an order of interim injunction of this honourable court restraining the 2nd to 14th defendants/respondents from further acting or parading themselves as the members of the caretaker/ extraordinary convention planning committee (CECPC) of the 1st defendant pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice already filed and served in the suit”.

“Alternatively, an order of interim injunction of this honourable court restraining the 2nd-14th defendants/respondents from conducting the local government and state congresses slated for September 4, 2021 or any other date, and other congresses of the 1st defendant in Delta state, pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice already filed and served.

“An order of interim injunction of this honourable court restraining the 2nd to 14th defendants/respondents from further acting or parading themselves as the members of the caretaker/extraordinary convention planning committee (CECPC) of the 1st defendant pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice already filed and served in the suit.”
