Court Terminates Suit Seeking APC, Oyetola’s Disqualification
A Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday dismissed a suit seeking disqualification of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and Governor Gboyega Oyetola from the Osun State Governorship election scheduled for Saturday.
According to newsmen, Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo dismissed the suit on six grounds that the plaintiff, a Chieftain of APC, Moshood Olalekan Adeoti, failed woefully to reveal any cause of action.
Justice Ekwo upheld the arguments of Olusegun Jolaawo SAN that membership of the APC’s Caretaker Extraordinary and Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) by
Governor Oyetola in which the suit is predicted is an ad-hoc body and not the real APC’s office recognized by the party’s Constitution.
The judge held that the suit instituted by the former governorship aspirant constituted a gross abuse of the court process and that the plaintiff did not exhaust the internal mechanism before rushing to court.
