Appeal Court affirms Abure as LP chairman




The Court Of Appeal in Abuja has affirmed Julius Abure as the Chairman of the Labour Party (LP). In a ruling delivered today March 6, the Appellate 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.


Justice Hamza Muazu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court had last year, granted an ex-parte order banning Abure and two other national officers from parading themselves as leaders of the party for allegedly forging national document.

However in a the judgement delivered today,  Justice Hamma Barka of the appellate Court set the ruling of the High court. The appellate Court held that the high court was wrong to have assumed jurisdiction on the matter.


The Appellate Court also awarded a cost of One million Naira in favour of Abure and against the respondent, Lamidi Apapa.
