APC crises worsen as chairman was reported to police

The crisis rocking the All Progressives Congress, APC, in Kwara
State has heightened as the Chairman of the party in the state,
Alhaji Ishola Balogun-Fulani has petitioned the State Commissioner
of Police, Aminu Saleh over Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa’s visit to his
office, where he paraded himself as the caretaker chairman of the
He stressed that he (Bolagun-Fulani) remains the authentic and
legally appointed chairman of the party in Kwara.
The petition referred Saleh to an Interim Order of Injunction from
the Kwara State High Court restraining Bolarinwa from showing off
or parading himself as the caretaker chairman of the APC in the
Balogun-Fulani stressed that the Police Commissioner and his
office were statutorily duty-bound to obey, respect and enforce the
court order while it lasts, and must, therefore, desist from
recognising Bolarinwa as caretaker chairman of the party.
He explained that Bolarinwa’s continued display of himself as
caretaker chairman of Kwara APC is a flagrant disobedience of
court order, which he said, amounts to contempt of court.
The APC Chairman alleged that Bolarinwa’s visit to Saleh was an
attempt to drag the Police Commissioner’s office into flouting
order of the court, which he described as a wanton disregard to the
law of the country.
He, therefore, urged the Police boss to be guided in his future
dealings with Bolarinwa and avoid any attempt to unduly drag his
office into supporting, assisting, encouraging and or aiding any
form of disrespect or disobedience to lawful order of the court.
Balogun-Fulani stressed that he, Secretary of the party, Prince
Christopher Tunji Ayeni and other State officers were properly and
legally elected as executive members of the Kwara APC on 19
May, 2018 and were consequently sworn into their respective
offices for a period of four years.
He added that they have been performing their functions since the
time of their election till date.
The Kwara State High Court had on 1 August, 2018 ordered
Bolarinwa and other members of the caretaker committee to stop
parading themselves or perform any function or duty specified for
members of the State party’s executive committee.
Part of the petition reads, “We write you on the above caption on
the instruction of Hon Ishola Balogun-Fulani, Hon. Christopher
Tunji Ayeni (who are respectively the Kwara Chairman and
Secretary of the All Progressives Congress, APC, as well as other
members of the Kwara Executive Committee of the All
Progressives Congress, APC, (here after called our clients).
“Our clients have instituted suit No: KWS/292/2018 before the
Kwara State High Court of Justice, Ilorin as claimants against
Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole and 5 other persons of which
Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa is the 6th Defendant as a challenge to the
purported appointment of Hon. Bashir Bolarinwa and other so-
called members of the Caretaker Committee of the All Progressives
Congress, APC in Kwara State on the ground of the baselessness
for the appointment of any Caretaker Committee for All
Progressives Congress, APC, in Kwara State after our clients were
duly elected.”
