The attempt to stop all the candidates of the All Progressive Congress, APC from fielding Candidates in Enugu State suffered a fatal blow as an Enugu High Court has thrown away the appeal.
The case filled by one Mr Kingsley Uduji (whom sources close to him said was sponsored by another party) was today dismissed by Justice K.I. Okpe of High Court 7 Enugu.
The plaintiff had prayed the court to cancel all the state congress by the party in the state for “violation of fundamental human rights.”
The counsel to the APC, Barr Ugo F. Ukwueze argued that the case has no locus and prayed the court to dismiss it.
In his ruling, justice Okpe ruled that;
1. The case was filed out of time
2. The matter was lacking in merit and
3. A waste of the time of the court.
Joined in the suit were Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC and The All Progressive Congress, APC.
