An aspirant for the November 16 governorship election in Kogi State under the platform of the APC, Mona Audu, has sued the party and its National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole.

Audu who filed the case at the High Court in Lokoja also joined the chairman of the party’s governorship primary election screening committee, Sen. Hope Uzodinma and INEC.

According to a copy of the suit, he claimed that he met all the criteria of being cleared to participate in the primary election.

He claimed that without going through the laid down processes for the selection of aspirants, the APC National Working Committee (NWC) unjustly excluded his name in the list of cleared aspirants, saying such was a power unknown to the history and traditional of  the APC  which he said had usurped his rights as a governorship aspirant.

Audu prayed the court for a declaration that the exclusion of his name from the governorship aspirants was a breach of his right to fair hearing and that the action was unconstitutional, null and void.

He also sought the court’s declaration that the defendants’ conduct of the screening exercise was in breach of the letters and spirit of the party’s constitutions.

He also prayed for the order of the court directing the first and

second defendants to include his name as one of the governorship aspirants for the primary.
