FCT Election: Karshi Wins At Supreme Court To Contest As APC Candidate

The Supreme Court struck out the case of Hon. Suleiman Alhassan Gwagwa challenging Hon. Murtala Karshi as the substantive candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abuja Municipal Area Council (AMAC) in the forthcoming FCT area councils elections.

It would be recalled that Karshi has approached the Supreme Court for justice challenging the judgment of the Appeal Court which favoured Gwagwa as the substantive candidate of the APC in the February 12 election.

Hon Justice Chima Centus Nweze JSC. from Enugu State who read the judgment said that all evidence presented by the defendant to challenge the candidacy of Karshi lacked merit.

He then struck out all their cases for lack of merit, while declaring the appellant, Murtal Karshi as the substantive chairmanship candidate of APC in AMAC.

Murtala Karshi while speaking on the judgement, commended the Supreme Court for putting an end to the controversy surrounding his candidacy, saying that justice has finally prevailed in the council.

He called on all APC supporters to stand as one and ensure that the party wins the chairmanship and councillorship seats in the council, thereby calling on all aggrieved members to join hands in working for the success of the party.
