According to 460play, the former chairman of the party had already been removed due to anti-party behavior.

According to our source, the national leadership of the party announced the chairman’s expulsion.

The party insisted that the chairman was ousted as a result of an investigation conducted by a disciplinary committee that was established by the National Working Committee (NWC) of the party.

However, Oginni, who disagreed with the national leadership of the party’s decision, filed a lawsuit at the Federal High Court disputing their right to expel him.

The previous chairman, however, failed his bid to take over as the party’s chairman in the state, according to information obtained by 460play on Monday.

The court dismissed the former chairman’s lawsuit under the direction of Justice Adefunmilola Demi-Ajayi.

It further stated that the former chairman had no right to hold his previous post again.

Demi-Ajayi stated that the original summons was deemed to be without merit in his ruling in the case number FHC/AB/CS/21/2023, in which Oginni was the plaintiff and the NNPP, NWC of the NNPP, and INEC were the other defendants.

This Court finds and holds that this matter is not a pre-election matter; rather, it is an intra-party matter, and as a result, the court lacks jurisdiction over it.

The issue must be resolved in a family-related manner. The defendants’/applicant’s objection is upheld because it was determined that the original summons was without merit.

“Therefore, the originating summons is discharged. Every party is responsible for its own charges.
