APGA 2

A Delta State High Court sitting at Kwale, in Ndokwa West Local Government Area of the state, has nullified the national convention of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, (APGA).

The plaintiffs, Ogonetus Okpanetus, Tayo Sowemi and Mic Adams in a suit sought the nullification of the National Executive Committee, (NEC), meeting of the party held on May 14, 2019, in Awka, Anambra State, where far-reaching decisions including the May 31, 2019, national convention were made.

Besides the May 31 convention held in Awka, where Mr. Victor Oye was re-elected national chairman, the May 14 NEC meeting purportedly excluded members of the party’s Board of Trustees, (BoT), the party organ that was dissolved at the NEC meeting with about one month to the end of tenure for members.

In its ruling, the court presided over by Justice Vincent Ofesi, granted the prayers of the plaintiffs, following the failure of the respondents to put up a defense.
