Court ejects CPC from National Secretariat over unpaid rent
After a protracted legal tussle, an Abuja High Court, Friday ejected the now rested Congress for Progressive Change, CPC, from its national secretariat over unpaid rent.
It was gathered that officials of the High Court stormed the Secretariat at noon on Friday in the company of security operatives to enforce the court order for the recovery of the premises.
Sources said the officers, on arrival at the secretariat made their way into the building after pasting the court papers on the gate and asked the few staff present to hand over to them the keys to all rooms in the three-Storey building.
It would be recalled that the party had engaged in a legal tussle over the property located at Plot 1132, Festus Okotie-Eboh Crescent in Utako District in the Federal Capital Territory ( FCT) owned by the party’s estranged pioneer national chairman, Senator Rufai Hanga.
The former chieftain of the CPC and now Senator Hanga’s Special Assistant on Media, Mr. Dennis Aghanya told newsmen outside the secretariat that the leadership of CPC under Mr. Tony Momoh had reneged on an agreement between Hanga over the use of the property and instead decided to settle it in court.
