The Supreme Court on Wednesday, fixed March 5 to deliver judgment in a suit filed by the All Progressives Congress, APC challenging the ruling of a lower court in favour of Mr. Dele Moses and 10 others.
The five-man panel led by Justice Amina Augie, fixed the stated date after listening to arguments from counsels in the matter.
A Rivers High Court had in December last year ruled that those who bought forms during the 2018 Congresses but were denied participation rights, should be incorporated in any new Congress of the party without paying for new forms.
The ruling was delivered by Justice George Omereji in the suit filed by a Chieftain of the APC, Dele Moses alongside ten others, against the party and its National Chairman at the time, Adams Oshiomhole.
Moses and Co had prayed the court to order APC not to sell ward, Local Government and State Congresses nomination forms, but instead declare them the authentic party members which they claimed were the decision of the supreme court in the matter instituted by one Ibrahim Umar and twenty-two others.
They had also prayed the court to order APC not to sell ward, Local Government, and State Congresses nomination forms.
The court however declined their prayers that they be declared authentic members of APC and be entitled to own the Leadership of Rivers APC.
