The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has affirmed the expulsion of Kenneth Udeze, a factional chairman of the Action Alliance, AA, from the party.
Giving the judgment at the Federal High Court 4 Abuja, Justice Zainab Abubakar, also struck out a suit brought before the court by the said Kenneth Udeze to stop INEC to set aside the court order directing INEC to release the upload code to the party, saying that the case lacks merit.
According to the judge: “The court viewed that Kenneth is not a member of Action Alliance, hence his lack of statutes to institute any matter at all on behalf of the party.”
Recalled that the party’s National Think Thank committee, which is the highest ruling organ of the party had since 2019 suspended and subsequently expelled Kenneth Udeze from the party.
Similarly, an Abuja Court of Appeal, in a judgment dated 11th November 2022, affirmed the expulsion and suspension of Barrister Kenneth Udeze from the party, Action Alliance.
In his reaction, the National Chairman of AA, Adekunle Rufai Omo-Aje, described the judgement as a welcome development and called on INEC to immediately release the code and pin to the party to upload its candidates to INEC
