In response to an alleged plot by some highly positioned INEC staff to undermine the party's leadership, Kenneth Udeze, the national chairman of the Action Alliance (AA) party, has filed a petition with Prof. Mahmood Yakubu, the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Udeze expressly demanded in the petition dated March 25th the retirement of a few INEC employees in Abuja who are collaborating with certain parties to instigate a new crisis in the party's leadership.

This is in spite of a ruling by the Court of Appeal on January 26th, which upheld Udeze's legitimacy as the authentic national chairman of AA.

According to Udeze, the INEC team is working nonstop to persuade the commission and the Federal High Court in Abeokuta, Ogun State, to acknowledge a purported AA National Convention held on October 7, 2023.

He said, this is blatantly against the decisions made by the Court of Appeal, which put an end to the party's raging leadership dispute.

Regarding a pending lawsuit in Abeokuta (FHC/AB/CS/12/2024) and another lawsuit in Kebbi State (FHC/KB/CS/12/2024), the national chairman charged the staff with deliberate misrepresentation of facts.

Udeze claims that the staff's activities are intended to weaken the Court of Appeal's endorsement of his leadership as well as the party's March 14, 2021, National Convention, when he was re-elected.

Udeze presented proof of court rulings, consent decrees, and INEC's documents that identify him as the legitimate national chairman of AA.
