A Federal High Court in Abuja has declined the request to include the Caretaker Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governor Mai Mala Buni as a defendant in a suit challenging the emergence of Andy Uba as the party’s candidate in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.

A governorship aspirant, Chief (Dr.) George Moghalu, had made the request in the suit he filed marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/648/2021, in which he is contending that the APC did not comply with the relevant provisions of the Electoral Act 2010 and the party’s regulations and guidelines in the conduct of its governorship primary in Anambra State on June 26, 2021.

In a ruling on Thursday, Justice Ahmed Mohammed held that the plaintiff’ request to join Buni as a party to the suit was without merit because the APC acting Chairman is not a necessary party.

Justice Mohammed, who noted that the plaintiff made no complaint against Buni in the suit, held the case could be effectively determined without him being joined as a party.
