Court Declares Chief Derin Adebiyi Appeal as Incompetent

To God be the glory! The FCT High Court No. 9, Maitama, Abuja today declared the Originating Summons filed by the former APC Chairman in Ogun State, Chief Derin Adebiyi, as incompetent and consequently set aside all the processes(including claimants application for interlocutory injunction) filed by Derin Adebiyi. (FCT/CV/363/2018 Chief Aderinola Adebiyi & Ors Vs APC & Ors).


In a statement signed by Tunde Oladunjoye, the Publicity Secretary of the Caretaker Committee of APC in Ogun State, and made available to journalists in Abeokuta, APC described the court ruling as “justice well-served and a boost for the party internal democracy”

This was sequence to the Notice of the preliminary objection filed by the counsel to the Defendants, Mr. Wale Abeeb Ajayi challenging the competence of the claimants originating Summons as well as their Motion for injunction.

The implication of the setting aside an order by the court is that the claimants can only appeal against the ruling of the court or file a fresh action. Hence, the court did not adjourn to any date at all.
