Breaking: Court refuses to join Buni in suit against Andy Uba’s candidacy

A Federal High Court in Abuja has declined the request to include the Caretaker Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Governor Mai Mala Buni as a defendant in a suit challenging the emergence of Andy Uba as the party’s candidate in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.

In a ruling on Thursday, Justice Ahmed Mohammed held that the plaintiff’ request to join Buni as a party to the suit was without merit because the APC acting Chairman is not a necessary party.

Justice Mohammed, who noted that the plaintiff made no complaint against Buni in the suit, held the case could be effectively determined without him being joined as a party.
