Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Kabiru R. An­war, Yola

The All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC) in Adamawa State con­ducted the lo­cal govern­ment congress in the 21 lo­cal govern­ment ar­eas of the state de­spite a high court in­junc­tion.

The In­terim Pub­lic­ity Sec­re­tary of the Party, Al­haji Sal­ihu Baba-Ahmed, de­nied knowl­edge of the court in­junc­tion, say­ing: “Which court in­junc­tion? I am just hear­ing this court thing from you”.

A Yola High Court presided over by the Act­ing Chief Judge of the state, Jus­tice Am­brose Na­madi, had on Mon­day granted an ex­parte mo­tion re­strain­ing the APC from con­duct­ing the congress in Yola South, Mubi North Mubi South and Guyuk LGAs fol­low­ing a suit filed by Al­haji Dikko Mo­hammed and 12 oth­ers against APC and five oth­ers.

How­ever, coun­sel to the ap­pli­cants, Bar­ris­ter A.B Panyi, said the rul­ing had been com­mu­ni­cated to the party. “We took it to the party sec­re­tariat yes­ter­day. The staff we met said they were told not to col­lect the in­junc­tion mak­ing us to drop the paper there be­fore them”, he said.

Panyi ac­cused the APC lead­er­ship of dis­re­spect­ing the court, say­ing the party was aware and go­ing ahead to con­duct the congress in the af­fected lo­cal gov­ern­ments was a show of dis­re­spect to court or­der.
