Dr Sani Shinkafi, a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress in Zamfara State on Sunday said that there is no order from the Federal High Court restraining the party from conducting congresses in Zamfara.

Shinkafi stated this at a news conference, in Gusau on Sunday, while commenting on the Nov. 13 ward congresses conducted by the party in the state.

The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the APC leadership in the state, under the Gov. Bello Matawalle faction, led by Sen. Hassan Nasiha, on Saturday conducted congresses in the 147 wards of the state.

The Congresses took stakeholders by the storm as there was a Federal High Court Order restraining the APC from further action, pending the determination of a suit filed by 10 local governments party chairmen in the state.

The chairmen had filed the matter before the court to contest their dissolution from office before their tenure of ended.

The Gov Mai Mala Buni-led APC National Caretaker and Convention Committee announced the dissolution of all the party executives in the state on June 28, shortly before Gov Bello Matawalle defected to the APC.

The chairmen had instituted the suit against the APC and the National Caretaker Committee chairman as first and second defendants.

They had also joined the Independent National Electoral Commission as the third defendant.

The Court had, however, asked the two parties to maintain the status quo, pending the determination of the substantive suit before it.
