The complaint challenging the All Progressives Congress, APC, ward congress in Delta state was dismissed by the Delta State High Court on Wednesday in Asaba.
Justice GB Obriki-Okolosi, the presiding Judge, stated the case was dismissed because the issue was not justiciable.
The case was disputed, according to Okolosi, and should have been brought by means of originating summons, adding that the “Court would typically have instructed the plaintiffs to go and re-file their pleadings, but the subject is not justiciable since it is a political party’s internal problem.”
Chief Festus Keyamo and his followers have protested the results of the state’s ward congresses.
The APC, the national caretaker committee chairman of the party, Mai Mala Buni, Prophet Jones Erue, and two other members of the Chief Festus Keyamo faction had taken the APC, the national caretaker committee chairman of the party, Mai Mala Buni, Prophet Jones Erue, and two other members of the Chief Festus Keyamo faction to court, challenging the outcome of the ward congresses in Delta state.
