A Sokoto High Court had last week restrained the party from appointing or electing Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu or any member into its top positions except through a national convention.
National Chairman of the party, Adams Oshoomhole announced the agreement for all the warring factions to withdraw all court cases at the National Working Committee (NWC) meeting last week
However, in a statement yesterday, Nabena said that in agreement and understanding with Onilu he would act pending the time he sorted out the court matter.
“APC is a law-abiding party and as leaders of the party, we must be seen to be doing the right thing at all times, including respecting the order of the court. In lieu of this, Mallam Onilu has begun the process of vacating the order of the Sokoto High Court restraining him but pending the time this will be done, I will act in his position.

“Unlike the former ruling party, APC has high regard for the judiciary and we must be seen at all times practice what we preach,” Nabena stated.
Nabena, however, requested for understanding among the APC supporters at home and in the Diasporas, urging the media and other stakeholders to cooperate with him in carrying out the assignment as usual.
He also assured media representatives of prompt responses to inquiries and clarifications while creating mutual understanding between the public and the governing party.
All efforts to reach Issa-Onilu was abortive as he would not pick several telephone calls put across to him.
