The other NWC members include,  Deputy ,National Chairman, Chief Uche Secondus; National Secretary,  Prof. Wale Oladipo; Deupty National Secretary, Solomo Onwe; National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh; National Women Leader, Chief Kema Chikwe.
Others are National Financial Secretary, Bolaji Anani, National Legal Adviser, Victor Kwom; National Organising Secretary, Abubakar Mustapha,National Youth Leader, Hussaini Maibasira; National Treasurer, Bala Buhari; and National Auditor, Adewale Adeyanju.
In the supporting affidavit, the plaintiffs, said some leaders of the party were calling for the dissolution of the NWC of the party because of the defeat suffered in the last election.
The affidavit added that the calls for their resignation was against the spirit of the constitution of the party and the collective resolve of party members “to reposition the party for success in future elections.”
No date has been fixed for the hearing of the case.
