A Bauchi State High Court has issued an Order of Interim Injunction halting any moves by the All Progressives Congress, APC to inaugurate new leaders of the party in the state.
The recently conducted APC State Congress produced two factional leaders with Hon Sanusi Aliyu Kunde and Hon Babayo Aliyu Misau each claiming to be the legitimate APC leader in Bauchi State.
Alhaji Hassan Mohammed Sherif, a Bauchi APC Chieftain, secured the Court Order impeding the national leadership of the party from administering the oath of office on Hon Babayo Aliyu Misau along with other executives of the party that emerged as leaders of the party in the state along with him.
A copy of the Court Order which was made available to WikkiTimes barred the acting APC National Care Taking Committee Chairman Mai Mala Buni, Minister of Education Malam Adamu Adamu and former Speaker of the House of Representatives Hon Yakubu Dogara and their ‘privies, agents, cohorts and representatives in whatever capacity from administering the oath of office or according to’ Hon Babayo Aliyu Misau and his backroom ‘recognition’ as Bauchi APC leaders.
Similarly, the Court Order also stoped Hon Babayo Aliyu Misau and those that emerged as APC leaders in Bauchi State along with him from ‘parading themselves in whatsoever manners or means and or acting in whatever capacities or names called as Bauchi State Executive Officers of APC pending the hearing of the substantive suit filed.’
