Tenure Extension: Court Dismisses Suit Against APC Excos

A Federal High Court in Abuja today, has dismissed two suits filed by five members of the All Progressive Congress (APC), challenging the alleged extension of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) members’ tenure.

Naija News learnt that Justice Nnamdi Dimgba who gave the ruling in the two judgments today held that the suits have been over taken by events following the decision of the APC to reverse the purported tenure elongation and proceed to conduct congresses nationwide to elect leaders and officers for the party.

The current officers’ tenure ends on June 30.

Justice Dimgba said he dismissed the suit because their “subject matter have become academic, hypothetical and spent.”

The judge said he was convinced there was an attempt to extend the tenure of the NWC, but for some reasons, the party changed its mind. He said had the party not changed its mind and proceeded to carry through the extension, such would have been unconstitutional.
