The crisis in the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) is taking another dimension despite the party’s attempt to search for a wave of lasting peace. It would be recalled that ruling party, faced by turbulent times ahead of the Edo state election, had dissolved its national working committee led by Adams Oshiomhole.

Arigbaruwo, in a suit with number FHC/L/CS/789/2020, faulted the NEC meeting of the party held on Thursday, June 25, where the committee was constituted. He also wanted a Federal High Court in Lagos to stop the committee from performing its function. APC, Victor Giadom, NEC and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) are listed as respondents in the suit.

“The plaintiff is seeking an order of the court setting aside all the decisions taken in the NEC meeting, which he declared illegal on the grounds that it was conveyed in the June 24 and held on June 25, contrary to Article 25 of the APC Constitution,” part of the suit read.

The group, which has Abubakar Sadiq Saadu as it chairman and David Okumba as secretary, said it has conveyed a letter to the chairman of the caretaker/extra-ordinary national convention planning committee, Governor Mai Mala Buni. Addressing journalists in Abuja on Monday, July 6, leaders of the Integrity Group said they will provide necessary supports for the Buni-led caretaker committee in order to make it succeed in its peace search mission.
