The crisis in the Enugu State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) arising from the tussle for the governorship ticket is far from over. In practical demonstration of this, a frontline gubernatorial aspirant, Barr. George Ogara, has dragged his opponent, Senator Ayogu Eze, the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, to court.
In a Motion on Notice with Suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/1305/2018 Ogara is seeking an order of interlocutory injunction restraining “the party, and Oshiomhole by themselves, their servants, agents, privies or whosoever” from submitting any other name not being the name of the plaintiff to the Independent National Electoral Committee (INEC) pending the determination of the substantive suit.
In the suit filed on November 2, 2018 at an Abuja Federal High Court Ogara is also seeking an order restraining INEC from receiving any other name not being the name of the Plaintiff.
Ogara is seeking the order on the grounds that he scored the highest number of votes cast in the direct primary election conducted for Enugu State governorship aspirants on October 4, 2018 for the nomination of the state governorship candidate.
The latest court matter in the APC Enugu guber tussle is Ogara’s reaction to the list of APC governorship candidates published in a national daily.
