Okorocha defeats Uzodinma in High Court ruling

- As court reaffirms Dan Nwafor Led Imo APC

- Warns Nlemigbo, others

The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, the nation's capital has today, struck out a motion for stay of execution brought by some APC members in contravention of the NEC's directive to discontinue all court processes. 

In striking out the motion, Justice Musa described the motion as mischievous, since he had since 2018 given a judgement which forbade any organ of the Party from tampering with the tenure of the duly elected leadership of the Party in Imo State. 

By this ruling, the Rochas Okorocha backed Dan Nwafor faction of the Imo APC, has displaced the Hope Uzodinma backed Marcon Nlemigbo faction.

The APC in the state, had been factioned, with both sides claiming the authentic APC leadership in the state.

With the sack of Adams Oshiomhole, the Hope Uzodinma backed faction lost some steam. With the Court ruling today, Okorocha may have effectively taken over APC in the state.
