VIOLATION: PDP Drags APC, INEC, Others To Court.
It has been reported that the Peoples Democratic Party, Delta State, has dragged 43 candidates of the All Progressives Congress to court for allegedly violating the 2022 Electoral Act.
The Plaintiff in Suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/1406/2022, is praying the court to scrutinise and interpret the combined provisions of Section 82(1), (2), (5) and (8) and other enabling laws on that behalf, to interrogate the actions and inactions of APC in relations to notices served on INEC for congress and primaries.
Speaking to our correspondent on Monday in Asaba, the Executive Assistant to Delta State Governor on Communication, Fred Oghenesivbe, said that APC had deliberately violated relevant sections of the Electoral Act 2022, by not adhering strictly to stipulated requirements and time frame for the conduct of party congress.
He said, “The legal infractions committed by the APC have now been subjected to legal interpretations and foreseeable consequential orders via a lawsuit filed at the Federal High Court Abuja, by PDP.
