Appeal Court Affirms Abure as LP Chair, Fines Apapa N1m

The Court Of Appeal in Abuja has affirmed Julius Abure as the Chairman of the Labour Party.

The Court also set aside the decision of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court which last year, restrained Abure and two others from parading themselves as national officers of the party.

In the judgment delivered by Justice Hamma Barka, the Appellate Court held that the high court was wrong to have assumed jurisdiction on the matter and also awarded a cost of One million Naira in favour of Abure and against the respondent, Lamidi Apapa.

Justice Hamza Muazu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court had last year, granted an ex-parte order, ordering that Abure and two other national officers stop parading themselves as leaders of the party for allegedly forging national documents but the Appellate Court set the verdict aside.

The Appellate court held that Abure’s appeal had merit and was thereby allowed.
