Justice Ibrahim Saulawa of an appeal court has overturned an earlier judgement of the Kwara state high court over the authentic state working committee of the All Progressives Congress in the state.
During a sitting in Ilorin, Justice Ibrahim Saulawa ruled that the lower court has no jurisdiction in entertaining the case in the first instance as matters relating to the Independent National Electoral Commission cannot be heard by a state high court.
The court recognised the Bashir Bolarinwa-led executive committee as the authentic APC executives in Kwara state as against the Ishola Balogun-Fulani faction recognised by the lower court.
Justice Saulawa said the judgement of the lower court as a “share fruitless academic exercise” which holds no water in law.
