A former minister of interior in the cabinet of ex-President Muhammadu Buhari, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola, has landed in trouble.

Aregbesola, a former Osun governor, has been sued by the state chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for allegedly causing a faction within the party.

The APC, through its counsel Ayodele Kusamotu, Yemi Akingbade, R.I.O Oloyede and B.J Nwayen, asked the court to declare that the former minister of interior cannot validly lead suspended party members and other persons associating with them to launch a political, factional and parallel group named Omoluabi Progressives within the party.

APC contended that launching a factional political group or party within the party using the party’s logo, symbol and slogan is considered to have contravened the constitution of Nigeria and the party’s constitution.

The party said that Aregbesola has no constitutional power to launch a factional group within the party, thereby seeking an order from the court to proscribe and prohibit the factional group within APC in Osun.

The party also asked the court to restrain Aregbesola and his supporters from further forming any factional group or parallel association within the party.

The FHC/OS/CS/1/2024 suit number was filed before a Federal High Court, Osogbo Judiciary Division.

The APC joined former Governor Aregbesola and three others, including the Independent National Electoral Commission, Hon Rasheed Olalekan Afolabi and Mr Lani Baderinwa, in the suit.
