APC convention: aggrieved party members cite ruling against Buni

Aggrieved APC members in Delta, Osun, Akwa Ibom and Ekiti states, have faulted a plan by the party’s national interim committee to recognise executive councils endorsed by incumbent governors or highest political office holders in non-APC states.

As the crisis in the party worsened, the stakeholders have therefore decided to continue with suits filed against the national interim committees as well as the ward and local government congresses.

Some of the aggrieved members, particularly Ekiti State stakeholders, specifically referred to the Supreme Court judgment on the Ondo State governorship election, which they said declared the Mala Buni-led committee illegal.

In Ekiti and Delta states, APC  chieftains boycotted congresses supervised by the teams sent by the national interim committee.

Commenting on the development, aggrieved APC members in Ekiti State said that the legal action that they instituted against conduct of the July 31 ward congresses was suffice for the local government and state congresses as something could not stand on nothing.
