Going by Supreme Court judgement, APC is no more a party as at today – PDP Ebonyi

The caretaker chairman of Peoples Democratic Party, (PDP), Ebonyi state chapter, Chief Fred Udeogu, has said that there is nothing, legal, like APC in Nigeria today, based on judgment and the position of the Supreme Court on the Ondo state election.

Udeogu who made this position known in an interview with Blue Print newspaper in Abakaliki the Ebonyi state capital.

He maintained that the Supreme Court remains the apex court in the land, adding that there was nothing anybody can say about the judgement that will counter its position.

He said, “As far as I am concerned there were no ward congresses because it will be annulled, it is an exercise in futility so am not taking them seriously.“The assumption is wrong, I don’t want to go into detail of the meetings of the party because I’m not their member but the truth about it is that there are legal gurus within the party that knows the correct position. Buni is not, and I repeat he is not the chairman of that party.

“They floated the constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and whatever position you can claim you have as contained in the constitution of the party cannot in any form whatsoever be in line with the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“The Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria counters the content of any Constitution of the party, they defrauded themselves. From the point of making Buni the chairman of the party that was where they lost it, and because of that there is nothing anybody can do to change it.

” How can you bring somebody who is on salary, a serving governor of a state and say he is serving as governor and chairman of the party? Is it done that way in Nigeria from the first republic down the line? So they made a very legal mistake and I thought that’s what they are going to embark on to correct those anomalies before they can now do whatever they are doing. If not, we are not seeing them as political parties for today.”
