ABUJA – Kenneth Udeze has said that until a competent court of law decides otherwise as the case is still pending in court, he remained the National Chairman of Action Alliance.
Udeze said this while addressing newsmen in Abuja on Thursday, noting that while he still remained the National Chairman of the party, Vernimbe James remained the National Secretary until court decided otherwise.
He said: “We call you to let the whole world know the state of Action Alliance national leadership. You will recall that few days ago, the media was awash with the news that I, the National Chairman of Action Alliance, Chief Barr. Kenneth Udeze and the National Secretary of the party, Vernimbe James have been suspended from the party.
“That is not correct, that is false, misleading and should be disregarded by all Action Alliance party members across Nigeria and Nigerians. What transpired was that some suspended national officers of the party with uniformed staff of the INEC made false pronouncement that the Action Alliance National Chairman and Secretary were suspended from the party.”
He explained that the matter of his purported suspension and that of James was a subject of litigations at the Federal High Court in Nyanya, Abuja and Federal High Court in Action Alliance v. Kenneth Udeze and one other of suit no. FCT/HC/CV/2263/2019 and Hon Adekunle Rufai Omoaje & 1 Other V. Barr. Kenneth Udeze & Others of suit no: FHC/OS/CS/23/2018.
Udeze further explained that INEC is the third defendant in the case, while he is the first defendant.
He said: “The matters are subjudice and that being the case, it amounted to affront in the face of the judiciary and executive rascality for someone from INEC informing us that we are on suspension which tends to pre-empt the court, the commission passing its judgement before the court delivers its own; and that could be traced as contempt of court.”
