A High Court of Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Bwari has upheld the election of Sukubo Saraigbe Sukubo as the President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria (NYCN).

Justice Othman Musan in a judgment, held that Sukuno was duly elected as NYCN’s President and that his occupation of the office was in order.

The judgment was on a suit by the Incorporated Trustees of the United Visionary Youth of Nigeria (UVYN), an affiliate group of NYCN.

UVYN had complained among others, of unlawful exclusion and not being issued notice requesting for nominations of delegates for the NYCN’s election held between August 5 and 7, 2018 in Port-Harcourt, Rivers State.

In the judgment delivered on August 12, 2020, a certified true copy of which was made available on Wednesday, Justice Musa held that the election was conducted in accordance with the constitution of the NYCN.

Justice Musa, who resolved the two issues identified for determination against the claimant, held that as against the claimant’s claim, there was evidence that it made nominations for the election.

The judge further held that the claimant failed to challenge the election within four days as required under the NYCN’s constitution, but chose to file the suit two years after the election took place.
