The Federal Supreme Court of Abuja confirmed on Friday a lawsuit seeking to prevent the suspended national president, the African Action Congress (AAC), Mr. Omoyele Sowore, from presenting himself as national party chairman.

The court, chaired by Judge Inyang Ekwo, handed down the sentence on Friday in Abuja. The court also ordered Malcolm Fabiyi to stop presenting himself as the national vice president of the AAC.

The orders followed a request in a lawsuit initiated on May 17 by the party’s acting National President, Leonard Nzenwa. The News Agency of Nigeria

(NAN) reports that the court had granted the orders after a request from the plaintiff, through his lawyer, Lawyer Emeka Ozan. Sowore, who was also the presidential candidate of the party in the last general elections, promised to appeal the ruling.
