APC set to take R-APC to court for copyright infringement

Published

RAPC

The All Progressive Congress (APC) has said it would drag leaders and members of Reformed All Progressives Congress (R-APC) to court on allegation of impersonation.

National Legal Adviser of the party, Mr Babatunde Ogala, made this known in a statement in Abuja while reacting to the formation of the group, headed by a top member of APC, Alhaji Buba Galadima.

Ogala described Galadima’s address at the formation of R-APC as reminiscent of the televised military address issued after a successful execution of a coup d’etat, which Nigerians had become used to before the advent of democracy.

He said that other persons in the splinter group had gone to town seeking to validate their conduct.

He added that the development necessitated the APC as the ruling party responsible for the protection of the country’s democracy, to clarify on the legal import of the action of the R-APC.

Ogala, however, said that the situation was well within the party’s control and assured that the rule of law must take its natural course on the matter.

The R-APC, which emerged out of APC on Wednesday, already has a National Working Committee, state executive committees and executive committees in the 774 local government areas across the country.

The legal adviser noted that Galadima had continued to perpetuate falsehood for the purpose of gaining either pecuniary or other benefits, adding that he was guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation.

“Without a doubt, the declaration of Galadima, if left unchecked, is capable of leading to public nuisance and a breach of peace across the country.

He noted that the R-APC was guilty of breach of trademark and infringement of copyright, saying that the APC trusted that relevant authorities would deal with the criminal conduct of the group.

Ogala said that as the action touched on the APC brand, it was forced to quickly take steps to protect it from being subjected to erosion by the thoughtless actions of the group.
