The legal tussle over the leadership of the Computer and Allied Products Dealers Association of Nigeria (CAPDAN), the umbrella body of Nigeria’s largest technology market, resumes at the Federal High Court, Lagos on April 9.
This followed the adjournment of the lawsuit filed by CAPDAN’s Board of Trustee asking the Ahmed Ojikutu, the incumbent president of the market association for Computer Village, Ikeja, to vacate his position.
The BoT had last year approached the High Court seeking immediate removal of Ojikutu whose tenure in office, it claimed, had expired in line with the provisions of the CAPDAN constitution that allowed a two-year tenure.
However with the intervention of the then State Police Commissioner Edgar Imohimi, a middle ground was reached to extend the tenure of the Ojikutu-led team, which did not seem to go down well with the BoT.
The BoT resolved to head for court on December 2 last year to challenge the continued stay in office by the present executives of the association.
The case came up on Wednesday, February 20, 2019 at the Federal High Court, Lagos, and was subsequently adjourned to April 9 for hearing.
