A High Court in the Federal Capital Terrtory has fixed Friday to hear a suit seeking to stop the All Progressives Congress, APC, National Convention slated for March 26, 2022.


The plaintiff in the matter, Salisu Umoru, dragged APC, the Chairman
Caretaker Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee and Gov. Mai
Mala Buni and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC,
before the court to challenge the planned convention.


Justice Bello Kawu fixed the date for the hearing following the
plaintiff’s counsel, Mike Enaharo-Ebah’s application for an
adjournment.


Enaharo-Ebah told the court that he needs time to go through some
applications due to the clash of representation of defence counsel on
March 15.


He said there were two counsel for APC and Buni and the court
adjourned the matter until Thursday for a report of proper representation
which has been resolved.
