The National Legal Adviser of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Babatunde Ogala, has accused the National Chairman of the party, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, of deliberately encroaching on his office in an attempt to undermine him.

Ogala, in an internal memo dated November 6, 2018, addressed to Oshiomhole, expressed displeasure that the action continued despite his open protest to the party’s national chairman during a meeting of the National Working Committee (NWC).

“I am constrained to put this memo and complaint in writing in the light of the repeated acts of usurpation and deliberate encroachment on my office and attempt to undermine my person,” Ogala said in the memo seen by TheCable, an online news medium.

The memo also read, “You will recall that you had previously done this in two previous matters wherein you had purportedly without recourse to me briefed the law firm of D. D. Dodo & Co. in Suit No: FCT/HC/CV/9265/2018, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu Vs. APC & 1or, and you also without recourse to us debriefed the law firm of Adeniyi Akintola (SAN) who had been briefed by the office of the legal adviser.

“As if that was not enough, you procured a secretary in your office to depose an affidavit on behalf of the party wherein the deponent lied on oath that he had the authority of the party on the said affidavit.

“The motion filed by the law firm of D. D. Dodo & Co. also told a lie that processes were served on the legal department in a certain suit No: FCT/HC/BW/CV/ 307/2018, Senator Hope Uzodinma vs APC & 2ors, but that same was not brought to your notice.

“This was an assertion that was false in every material particular and an attempt to denigrate the legal department and my office as no such processes were ever served on the legal department.”

He said Oshiomhole had apologised to him after the meeting where he quoted copiously from the party’s constitution which clearly defined the duties of the national legal adviser and that of the chairman.
