Adamawa: APC has no mandate to defend in court.

The Adamawa chapter of the All-Progressives Congress (APC) finds itself in a precarious position as it lacks the legitimate mandate to defend its interests in court. The party, known for its strong presence in Nigerian politics, has encountered internal strife and power struggles that have undermined its unity and credibility in Adamawa.

One of the main factors contributing to the Adamawa APC’s inability to defend itself effectively in court is the contentious illusion that it won the 2023 governorship election illegally through the rogue REC, Hudu Yunusa. The party has been embroiled in factional battles, with different groups claiming control and legitimacy. This internal division has resulted in a lack of clear and undisputed leadership, casting doubt on the party’s ability to present a cohesive and coherent legal defence in court.

Moreover, the Adamawa APC has faced allegations of irregularities and improprieties in its internal processes, particularly in relation to the conduct of primary elections. These allegations have further eroded public trust in the party and raised questions about the credibility of its leadership. In the absence of a transparent and fair selection process, the party struggles to demonstrate a legitimate mandate to represent its members and the electorate.

The consequences of the Adamawa APC’s disarray are evident in the courtroom. Without unified and credible evidence, the party’s legal defence becomes fragmented and weakened. Legal battles require strong and consistent arguments, backed by a solid organisational framework, to effectively present a case. The lack of a legitimate mandate hampers the party’s ability to make compelling arguments, undermining its prospects for success in court.

Additionally, the Adamawa APC’s inability to defend itself in court, which the people of Adamawa will soon witness, has broader implications for its political standing. The party’s credibility and public image suffer as a result, with many perceiving it as a fractured and dysfunctional entity. Such perceptions can significantly impact its support base and electoral prospects, as voters are less likely to align themselves with a party embroiled in internal chaos.

Hudu’s declaration that most of the APC members try in vain to defend has met its waterloo, as the Independent National Electoral Commission has dragged the rogue REC to the Adamawa State High Court sitting in Yola. If the body that is responsible for conducting elections in Nigeria and also delegated Hudu to Adamawa to oversee its office has filed criminal charges against the rogue REC, what mandate will the APC be defending in court, and what result will they be arguing with?

In conclusion, the Adamawa chapter of the APC faces significant hurdles in defending a non-exitant mandate in court due to its lack of legitimacy and internal divisions.
