The Supreme Court has set aside the decision of the Port Harcourt Division of the Court of Appeal, on the conduct of congresses by the All Progressives Congress in Rivers State.

 

The Supreme Court panel led by Justice CENTUS NWEZE, in a judgment in an appeal filed by IBRAHIM UMAR and twenty-two other aggrieved members of the APC, held that the Court of Appeal, ought not to have vacated the injunctive order issued against the APC by the Rivers State High Court on the conduct of the congresses.

 

Our correspondent reports that the apex Court set aside the order on the grounds that the appellate court acted in bad faith.

 

The Supreme Court in the judgment criticized the Appeal Court for judicially indulging APC and vacating the injunctive order in the party’s favour when there is abundant evidence that the APC was in contempt of court.

 

Justice CHIWENDU  NWORGU of the High Court in Port Harcourt had in an exparte motion filed by UMAR, restrained the APC from conducting the congresses pending the determination of the suit instituted by UMAR, complaining against their exclusion from the party’s congresses.
