Afflicted members of the All Progressive Congress, APC, again obtained a court order that limits the national labor committee of the party to hold congresses in the state of the rivers.
Ibrahim Umar and 22 other members of the APC senator Magnus Abe approached the court to stop the proposed congresses.
Last week, the APC national labor committee set up a caregiver committee for 5 people led by Isaac Ogbogbula that authorizes them to hold congresses in the state.
But the congresses scheduled for September 17 have now failed following the order of Judge Letam Nyordee of the Superior Court of State in Port Harcourt, in a lawsuit brought by Henry Bello, lawyer of Ibrahim Umar.
“An order is hereby made that all parties in the matter should maintain status quo in relation to the subject matter of the proceedings in this suit pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice,” the order read.
The matter was adjourned to September 17 for hearing.
Latest Nigeria News reports that this is a renewal of the crisis that denied the APC the opportunity of fielding candidates in the 2019 General Elections, which was evoked by the same Ibrahim Umar and 22 others.
