The High Court of Nasarawa State, sitting in Lafia, has issued an order restraining the All Progressives Congress, APC, from conducting any election or appointing a replacement for the suspended Youth Leader of the party in the state, Comrade Abdullahi Masi.
The vacation Judge, Justice Abdullahi Shams Shama, issued the order on Wednesday, December 20, 2023.
Masi had taken legal action to prevent the ongoing plans to replace him as the youth leader of the APC in Nasarawa State.
The lawsuit, marked NSD/LF113/2023, listed the APC, the State Chairman of the party, and two others as respondents.
In the judgment delivered on Wednesday, Justice Shama granted an interim injunction, thereby restraining the respondents from replacing Comrade Masi pending the determination of the motion on notice.
Comrade Masi, a seasoned youth mobilizer, was suspended from office by the party a year ago over allegations of misconduct and involvement in anti-party activities.
