As the leadership of the All Progressives Congress, APC, moves to reorganise the party, some members have filed a fresh suit in court to stop the planned membership revalidation/registration in Rivers State.

This comes despite warnings by the National Executive Committee of the APC to members to withdraw all litigations against the party.

The applicants; Sunday Hawkings, Julius Nbugere, Lucky Nweke, Florence Deigh and Anthony Nwauche, said there should be no registration of new members into the APC until the matters in court have been disposed of.

Presiding Judge, Justice L. Ngbor Abina therefore ordered the applicants to put the defendants on notice and serve the APC by substituted means.

The matter, which is before a Rivers State High Court sitting in Okrika has been fixed for December 11 for hearing.

Earlier, the former State Publicity Secretary of the APC in Rivers State, Chris Finebone had alleged that there were plans by the Rivers State Government and the People’s Democratic Party, PDP, to destabilize the APC nationwide using the courts in Rivers state.
