Court Strikes Out Suit Challenging APC NWC Tenure Extension | The Precision

Justice Nnamdi Dimgba of the Federal High Court in Abuja has struck out two suits filed by five
members of the All Progressive Congress (APC), challenging the alleged
extension of the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) members’


In two judgments on Monday, Justice Dimgba held that the suits
have been over taken by events following the decision of the APC to
reverse the purported tenure elongation and proceed to conduct
congresses nationwide to elect leaders officers for the party.

The current officers’ tenure ends on June 30.

Justice Dimgba said he dismissed the suit because their “subject matter have become academic, hypothetical and spent.”

The judge said he was convinced there was an attempt to extend the
tenure of the NWC, but for some reasons, the party changed its mind.

He said had the party not changed its mind and proceeded to carry through the extension, such would have been unconstitutional.
