By Babalola Seyi

The All Progressives Congress National Vice Chairman ( North – East ), Mustapha Salihu, has dissociated himself from a fresh court order asking him to take over as the National Secretary of the party.

Salihu told newsmen in Abuja, on Thursday that it was impossible for him to be a party to the suit because it convened the virtual Zonal Executive Council meeting where the appointment of Waziri Bulama , as APC National Secretary was ratified.

Salihu said, “My zone, the North East has already nominated Architect Waziri Bulama as the acting national secretary in the presence of the Senate president , APC governors from the zone and other party stakeholders. I was at the meeting where this decision was reached.

So why now would I go back following a court order to act as national secret are?
“I was not part of such shenanigan . It is not in my character to play such dirty politics and I condemn in strong terms those behind the act . At a time like this when the party is going through trying times , it is such a time that all lovers of the party must pull together to keep the party running ”.

An order dated June 16 , 2020 , obtained from the FCT High Court sitting in Maitama presided over by Hon Justice S . U Bature which had “Comrade Salihu” as the purported applicant , granted the interim order asking the applicant to act as national secretary pending “the decision of a validly convened National Executive Committee , NEC or pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice already filed , whichever comes first . ”

The motion ex – parte with number FCT/ HC /M / 7707 / 2020 was supported by an affidavit sworn by one Obinna Ugwu .
