The Action Alliance (AA) has publicly distanced itself from the lawsuit that factional Party Chairman Kenneth Udeze filed against INEC and three of its main officers.
Udeze has filed a form 48 with the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, against INEC and its chairman, Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu, at the request of the party’s national chairman, Adekunle Rufai Omo-Aje.
According to Udeze, he is a plaintiff in the case with INEC directors Mr. Aminu Idris (in charge of political party monitoring and liaison) and Dr. Tanimu Mohammed (in charge of litigation and prosecution). The case is docketed as FCT/HC/CV/174/2022.
Omo-Aje claims that since Udeze and his companions were ejected from the party, they have no authority to speak on its behalf.
It is stated that “the National chairman of the party is the only authentic and recognized person to represent the party at any level on any issue that affects the party, and he is not a party to any suit against the Election umpire.”
The statement stated that a few courts had ordered INEC to accept Omo-Aje as the national chairman of the AA. These courts included the Ogun State High Court, the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, and the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal.
