Former Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu

A former Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu, has said he voluntarily withdrew his suit against the All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Supreme Court.

The former minister made this known in a telephone interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday.


Shittu had dragged the party to court after he was disqualified from participating in the APC governorship primary.

The party had said they disqualified Shittu because he failed to participate in the one-year compulsory NYSC scheme.

However, both the High and Appeal courts had dismissed the suit because it was instituted outside the stipulated time frame allowed by the Electoral Act.

Speaking on withdrawing the care, Shittu said: “When the appeal came up before the Supreme Court on Thursday, and before same could be heard, my counsel stood up and voluntarily withdrew the appeal.

“It must be noted that the dismissal of the suit was based on the application of my counsel and same was not predicated on the decision of the case on the merits,” Shittu said.

He said that he listened to the advice of his counsel who made reference to the decision of the Court of Appeal in Dapo Abiodun’s case.

“Therefore, the Appeal Court has already laid the issue to rest effectively and there is, therefore, no need to flog a dead horse,” he said.
