High Court of the Federal Capital Territory on Monday rejected an application to vacate an interim order restraining National Chairman of the Labour Party, Julius Abure; National Secretary, Alhaji Farouk Ibrahim, and two others from parading themselves as leaders of the party.
Abure’s counsel, Alex Ejieseme SAN, had prayed the court to vacate the interim order after another faction had forcefully taken over the party’s national secretariat.
Ejieseme told the court that the division in the party following the interim order had worsened to the extent that four groups in the Imo State chapter of the Labour Party conducted parallel primaries over the weekend.
The counsel, therefore, prayed the court to have the matter heard speedily.
But Justice Muazu only ordered all parties in the suit to ensure the speedy filing of their processes
The judge fixed April 20 to take all applications in respect of the case.
