According to a statement Sunday by the National Publicity Secretary of the party, Prince Dayo Adeyeye, “The decision is taken without prejudice but in view of the fact that the National Caretaker Committee (NCC) is no longer too pressured with legal matters since the Supreme Court Judgement of July 12, 2017.
