Supreme Court Settles Rivers APC Crisis, Rules In Favour Of Amechi's Camp by garfield1: 5:42pm On Mar 05, 2021
After 6 years of internal crisis, the Supreme Court has cleared all the hurdles hampering the progress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State.

The apex Court after years of painstaking litigation between two factions of the APC led by the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, and Senator Magnus Abe respectively resolved that the party and her decisions are supreme.

Consequently, the Court in a judgement read by Amina Adamu Augie, JSC, upheld the ruling of the Appeal Court and declared Isaac Abbot-Ogbogbula, Chairman of the APC in Rivers State following his appointment by the National leadership of the party.

Justice Augie on Igo Aguma v All Progressives Congress & 2 Ors (SC.17/2021) resolved that the decision of the trial court presided over by Justice George Omereji (rtd) of the Rivers State High Court was out of place because the court lacked the jurisdiction to hear the matter.



“A political party is supreme over its own affairs. The appeal is meritorious. Onuoha v. Okafor; A party is like a club with voluntary membership to be so bound by its own rules. The issue of leadership is an internal domestic affair and the jurisdiction of the Court is ousted. The subject matter of the Appeal is not justifiable. The Cross Appeal is struck out,” the court declared.

On the suit by Dele Moses & Others, the court said the matter was not heard on its merit.

The Supreme Court decided that it is not within the purview of the court to protect the rights and privileges of members of a political party, particularly the APC because, “that is an internal party matter.”

Highly necessary... Opposition is necessary to keep the other in check.

That's the beauty of democracy.

Oga,we are talking of party politics not insecurity and hardship.there are several threads for that on FP..
Amechi is leader of apc in rivers so Abe has to defer to him and respect him...after all wike is controlling pdp.is it in pdp that Abe won't be controlled.it will be difficult for Abe to defect, he is a board member of nnpc.no be small post be that.what will pdp offer him that will match that

This is Abe's chance and APC can only make strong impact if they make Abe their candidate based on the the facts that
*He is Experience
*He is from the riverine
*He has strong followers.base

Abe will remain 'cos he has a Federal appointment, but will be an opposition from the inside.

Aguma exited APC today, others to follow him.

Oga,board members are of course toothless but being a board member of nnpc is not just any kind position.he earns more than most mda heads.would you rather he goes to pdp and become an lg chair like chidi Lloyd?

Honestly,magnus is the best person apc has but he has to calm down and pretend to be humble to amechi.

Yes.I earlier suggested that he should find a way to work with amechi since amechi is his senior politically and state apc leader.even in pdp,amechi has always been his leader so I dont know why he is fighting amechi.even if amechi doesn't allow him to be governor,he can always reward him and his followers with something else.amechi has a good heart unlike wike.it is a simple matter.if he goes to pdp,wike will give him a demeaning post.

He is 100% involved with the crisis in CRS. Those 4 SC judges need to be flogged thoroughly.

In all the interviews I have read concerning Abe, he has never denied how Amaechi helped him politically. The Central point is that I want to be Governor.
