The Supreme Court led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour threw out an appeal by members of the sacked executives of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by Ishola Balogun-Fulani.
In a unanimous ruling on Wednessday, the panel of the Apex court held that the appeal was without merit.
The court said since the appeal was on an interlocutory decision of a High Court in Ilorin, the record ought to be compiled and transmitted within 14 days as required under Order 7 of the Supreme Court’s Rules.
Justice Ariwoola thereby held that the appellants, having failed to comply with the court’s rules when they transmitted the record of appeal outside the 14-day period, rendered their appeal incompetent.
Following the defection of Senate President Bukola Saraki to Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), National Chairman of APC Comrade Adams Oshiomole sacked the Balogun-Fulani led executive in 2018 and installed another state executive under the chairmanship of Bashir Bolarinwa.
Balogun-Fulani is believed to be a loyalist of Senate President Bukola Saraki.
