The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on Wednesday said no Court order has restrained it from conducting the proposed membership re-validation and registration exercise.
The party in a statement in Abuja by its Deputy National Publicity Secretary, Yekini Nabena said it has investigated the purported court order and found out that no such order was granted by the court.
According to Nabena, “In respect of the suit: KALU KALU AGU V. APC & ORS, FHC/ABJ/CS/736/2020, a Legal Officer was sent to Court on the 17th of November, 2020 to investigate the purported Court Order restraining the All Progressives Congress (APC) from conducting membership registration.
“Upon our findings, we discovered that such Court Order was never granted by the Court, as no application was made to the Court to warrant the granting of such Order.
“The Evidence from the records of proceedings of Monday 16th November 2020 shows that No Order restraining the Party from conducting the membership registration was granted in respect of the above suit or any suit relating to the APC.
“The APC make bold to assert that the purported court order was erroneously reported and urge the general public to disregard. We equally call on our teeming party supporters, members, and leaders to ignore the fake news and go about with their good work of repositioning the Party.”
