The Abia faction accused Oyegun of defying a court order to conduct the state congress of the party A faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia state has threatened to drag the national chairman of the party, Chief John Odigie-Oyegun, back to court for disobeying a court order on the state convention. The faction is accusing Oyegun of defying a court order to conduct the state congress of the party. It is also accusing him of going against the court order to inaugurate Hon Donatus Nwankpa as state chairman, Vanguard reports. Speaking to journalists in Umuahia, the publicity secretary of the Ndukwe-led faction, Hon. Mike Ozoemena, said the faction decided to press contempt charges against Oyegun so as to remind him that the rule of law remains the backbone of a democratic society.
He recalled that a court order issued by an Abia state high court on March 8, 2018 “restrained Oyegun, Nwankpa and his executives and their agents from organizing any ward, local government or state congresses or primaries of the APC in Abia state.” Ozoemena therefore, expressed disappointment that Oyegun ignored the valid order properly served on him.
