Court dismisses suit challenging Katsina APC congresses


The Federal High Court sitting in Katsina State on Thursday dismissed a case filed by a factional group of the All Progressive Congress, known as APC AKIDA challenging the APC congresses held in the state on the ground that it is statue barred. 

The Judge, Justice Hadiza Rabiu Shagari while giving judgement at the court sitting dismissed the case saying it was not filed within the stipulated 14 days time.

However, the counsel to the plantiffs, Iorhuna Shedrack said it will study the judgment and may likely approach the appeal court on the matter based on the fact that the court rely on a provision mentioning primaries and not congresses. Shedrack said the ruling is against his client but the judge acted in line with the court of law.

Meanwhile, counsel to the APC, Ernest Ogbunadike lauded the judgment of the court saying it was well thought out.
