Buba Galadima, the chairman of the Reformed All Progressives Congress, R-APC, has asked a federal high court in Abuja to grant R-APC members control of All Progressive Congress, APC.

In a report by TheCable, Galadima asked the court to annul the convention of the ruling party and declare offices of the national working committee, NWC, executives null and void.

The estranged associate of President Muhammadu Buhari argued that since the APC did not conduct a valid convention, the current national officials were doing so illegally.

On Wednesday, July 11, 2018,  the R-APC chairman, Buba Galadima wrote to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC),seeking a cancellation of the election of Adams Oshiomhole, national chairman of the APC.

Galadima had sought to invalidate what he described as the purported election of the Adams Oshiomole-led National executive committee of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

In Galadima's letter dated July 4, 2018, the R-APC leader told the electoral body that the Congresses leading up to the National Convention of the party were marred with serious irregularities and manipulations.

In a swift reply, the All Progressives Congress (APC) said that Alhaji Buba Galadima’s letter to INEC is ill-conceived.

National Publicity Secretary of the party, Malam Bolaji Abudullahi, replied the R-APC in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.

Galadima, a former stalwart of APC, recently led a splinter group out of the party and named it Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC).

He is the interim National Chairman of the group, which he has also led to join the coalition of 39 political parties and associations unveiled on Monday in Abuja.

Abdullahi said “I will like to point out that the action is ill-conceived and therefore futile. INEC has no powers to cancel an election it did not organise."
