Hilliard Eta, a former member of the dissolved National Working Committee (NWC) led by Adams Oshiomhole has dragged the All Progressives Congress (APC) to court.

According to reports, Eta filed a lawsuit at the Federal High Court in Abuja asking that the current Caretaker/Extraordinary Convention Planning Committee of the party be dissolved.

He also asked the court to declare him as the Acting Chairman of the ruling party.

Eta, who was the National Vice Chairman for South-South under Oshiomhole’s leadership of the APC reportedly filed the suit on Thursday, November 26.

In the suit, he challenged the dissolution of the Oshiomhole-led NWC in which he was the National Vice Chairman, South-South.

He also wants a court order restraining the caretaker committee led by Yobe state governor, Mai Mala Buni, from planning the party’s convention.

Joined in the lawsuit are members of Buni’s caretaker committee and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC). INEC.

According to Eta, INEC was added to the lawsuit because it was no longer dealing with the legitimate members of the APC’s leadership. Eta also argued in his suit that Buni could not legally hold the position of governor and caretaker chairman of the ruling party at the same time.

He also claimed that by virtue of this violation of the APC constitution, the Oshiomhole-led NWC still remained the rightful leaders of the APC.
