A member of the All Progressives Congress in Imo State, Okere Uzochukwu, on Friday filed a suit before the Federal High Court in Abuja challenging the extension of the tenure of members of the National Working Committee of the party by one year.

The tenure of the leadership of the party at the state, local government and ward levels was also extended by one year, according to the decision taken by the National Executive Committee of the party on February 27, 2018.

Uzochukwu, who said he was an aspirant to the state chairmanship position of the party in Imo State, contended in the suit marked, FHC/ABJ/CS/219/2018, that the tenure extension was undemocratic and violated the provisions of the constitution, the Electoral Act and the constitution of the APC.

He sued the APC and the Independent National Electoral Commission as the first and second respondents.
