Supreme Court affirms MacDonald Ebere as Imo APC chair

The Supreme Court has affirmed MacDonald Ebere as the rightful chairman of All Progressive Congress (APC) in Imo State. This followed its unanimous judgment setting aside an earlier ruling by an FCT High Court which recognised Mr Dan Nwafor as the chairman. In the Supreme Court judgment read by Justice Adamu Jauro on behalf of four other justices,it was held that the FCT High Court lacked jurisdiction to have heard the suit abinitio. "The trial court lacked the territorial jurisdictional competence to have entertained the suit in the first place, hence rendering the decision it reached a nullity" The Supreme Court further held thus," the law is settled that a suit should be filed in the High Court of the state in which the facts constituting the cause of action occurred; that is the High Court of the state in which the events occurred".

The prophets of doom had already written off the APC special convention before it started. But they didn't contend with the adroitness of the planners. The media was awash with screaming and scary  headlines of their imaginary and impending implosion of the party over a botched convention. But they didn't reckon with the resilience of the organizers. If they knew who was behind the wheel in the just concluded national convention of the ruling ALL PROGRESSIVE CONGRESS (APC), they would not have been consumed by that negative energy. H.E Governor HOPE UZODIMMA deserves a big congrats for chairing a committee that delivered a flawless and most competitive party primary election in a Democratic nigeria. He worked with a team of committed party members including governors and ministers, Uzodimma delivered an awesome convention which will continue to resonate in the political firmament of Nigeria. If Asiwaju Bola Tinubu  eventually emerges the president of Nigeria next year, nobody w
