Plot to Stop APC Convention Uncovered
A last-minute judicial order may be secured to halt the national convention of APC, Nigerian.
It was gathered that those behind it wanted it to be a last-minute joker, which reportedly explained the decision to wait for about 24 hours to the convention before throwing up the joker.
The convention opens tomorrow.
However, those allegedly behind the plot were said not to be disgruntled members who lost out in the state congresses.
It was gathered that the original brains behind the move belonged to a major caucus in the party, which may be heading for serious routing at the convention.
The caucus, considered to be a heavyweight until recently, was said to have resorted to using the judiciary to halt the convention, after permutations showed that candidates being backed by it for top national offices would be worsted by the emerging power centres in the party.
The resort to judicial intervention was seen as the only opportunity of legally delaying what was considered a doomsday, after horse-trading across board to rally the support of other tendencies and cleavages failed to yield the desired result.
The ex parte application can only be heard today if the move must materialise.
When contacted, the interim national publicity secretary, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said there was nothing anyone could do to stop anyone from going to court.
