FG SETS UP NATIONAL SAVINGS COMMITTEE TO BOOST INVESTMENTS.

Written by on March 6, 2019

Barely few days to the gubernatorial and House of Assembly elections in the country, a High Court in Calabar yesterday insisted that the removal of the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidates for the election in Cross River is a settled matter.

The High Court presided over by Justice Eyo Ita in a suit brought before it by an aggrieved APC governorship aspirant,Ukpan Odey, said since the appeal sought by the candidate were the same as that which a Federal High Court had already ruled on, it could not rule on them again.

The Federal High Court In Abuja had on February 11th, 2019, in suit FHC/CA/CS/73/2018 ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to delist all the names of candidates of APC from the 2019 elections.

Speaking with newsmen shortly after the judgment, A.U Bukar, the lawyer to Udey, while expressing his gladness at the court’s judgment, accused the APC of displaying what he described as political rascality.
