The All Progressives Congress (APC) has approached the Enugu State High Court seeking for an order setting aside the recent appointment of caretaker committees to run the affairs of the 17 local government areas of Enugu state by Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi.
In a motion on notice filed at the High Court with Suit No E/362/2015 by the 17 chairmanship candidates of the APC as claimants/applicants against the governor, the speaker of the House of Assembly, State Independent Electoral Commission (ENSIEC) and 23 others as defendants/respondents, the party insisted that the appointment of the caretaker committees clearly negated the provisions of the constitution and ought to be reversed without further delay.
In an affidavit in support of the motion on notice deposed at the High Court by one of the chairmanship candidates of the party and a former member of the House of Assembly, Hon. Hyacinth Nsude on behalf of the claimants, it was observed that the party had initiated action in December 2015 to restrain the governor from appointing the said committees.
Nsude claimed that they had moved the motion exparte for interim injunction restraining the defendants from appointing the committees on December 8, 2015 and that the court however ordered that the defendants be put on Notice culminating in their been served with copies of the originating summons and motion on Notice on December 15.
