A former member of the Action Alliance, Mr Kenneth Udeze has dragged the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Prof. Mahmoud Yakubu before a Federal Capital Territory High Court, Abuja.

Udeze had approached the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja to obtain form 48 against INEC and its chairman, Prof Mahmoud Yakubu.

Udeze also joined the INEC Director in charge of Political party monitoring and Liaison, Mr Aminu Idris and the Director in charge of Litigation and Prosecution, Dr Tanimu Mohammed in the suit marked FCT/HC/CV/174/2022.

The form 48 obtained by Udeze, a copy of which was obtained by our correspondent reads “Take notice that unless you obey the directions contained in this order, you will be guilty of contempt of court and will be liable to be committed to prison for contempt of court”

Udeze who claimed to be the national chairman of the Action Alliance (AA) had since been suspended and subsequently expelled from the party by the National Think Thank Committee of the party for various offences.

In different courts of competent jurisdictions, including the Federal High Court sitting in Abeokuta, the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja and the Court of Appeal, Abuja division, Udeze had lost legal battles to return to the party.

INEC had recently given recognition to Dr Adekunle Rufai Omoaje as the authentic national chairman of the Action Alliance and also insert his name on the commission’s website.
