The Supreme Court has struck out an appeal by members of the sacked executive of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara State, led by Ishola Balogun Fulani.
A five-man panel of the Supreme Court, led by Justice Olabode Rhodes-Vivour, held in a unanimous ruling on Wednesday, that the appeal was without merit.
Justice Olukayode Ariwoola, in the lead ruling, noted that the appeal, being on an interlocutory decision of a High Court in Ilorin, the record ought to be complied and transmitted within 14 days, as required under Order 7 of the Supreme Court’s Rules.
Justice Ariwoola 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, the appeal becomes incompetent.
