Court strikes out suit challenging validity of Osun APC state congress

From Lateef Dada, Osogbo

Justice Sikiru Oke of the Osun State High Court sitting in Ikire in Irewole Local Government Area has struck out a case instituted against the state congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for lack of diligent prosecution.

The suit was filed by Odetayo Olubunmi and Olanrewaju Esther, asking the court to invalidate the state congress that elected the Prince Gboyega Famodun-led State Executive.

The plaintiffs prayed the court to declare the parallel congress of the APC valid and recognise the faction as the authentic state officials of the party.

When the case came up Tuesday, counsel to the 6th defendant – APC, Mr Daud Akinloye, noted that the plaintiffs have abandoned their case considering their failure to appear in court since the institution of the suit.

Akinloye prayed the court to hold that the plaintiffs are not serious to pursue their case and strike out the suit for lack of diligent prosecution.

He noted that the absence of the plaintiffs and/or their counsel as well as their refusal to serve the originating processes on the 1st to 5th defendants should be taken as mere wasting of the court’s time.

Justice Sikiru Oke struck out the case for lack of diligent prosecution.

This came after six days the federal high court, Osogbo, dismissed a similar case instituted against the ward congress of the party.
