Court Declares Imo APC Congresses Null and Void


A Federal High Court in Owerri on Thursday nullified wards, Local Government Areas and state congresses of the Imo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress.
The court also ordered the party to hold fresh congresses. The presiding judge, Justice Lewis Allagoa, in a judgment that lasted for one hour, ordered APC “to be responsible, save our democracy by conducting free and fair congresses in Imo State.”
The judge who dismissed a motion filed by the defendants, insisted that his court had jurisdiction to hear the matter.
He said that the exhibits tendered by the plaintiffs suggesting that there was no ward congress in the state on May 5, “was factual.”
