Court restrains APC from conducting Ward, LGs congresses in Anambra



An Anambra State High Court sitting in Awka on Wednesday issued Interlocutory Injunction restraining the All Progressives Congress (APC) from conducting Ward and local government congresses in the state.

Justice Ike Ogu of High Court four, Awka made the order following application by 18 APC Local Government chairmen and other chieftains pending the determination of a matter in suit number A/33/22 before it.

The APC led by Senator Andy Uba had earlier announced that ward congresses would commence in the state from January 26 before the local government congresses in the 21 Local Government Areas.

But one Lawrence Emegini, Obed Chuks and 16 others approached the court seeking an order barring the congresses in the area.

The position of the applicants was that their tenure was still subsisting, noting that the party could not hold another congress till they exhausted full years in office.
