It was gathered that Mr Taiye Oyeniyi as the former Secretary of the Board of ANLCA had written a letter to the CAC requesting to withdraw the Constitution for what the Secretary of the association, Alhaji Mukaila Abdulazeez , said was for obvious reasons.
The application by the former Board was dated February 10, the same time that their tenure expired.
The letter from Maryam Faruk who signed for the CAC Registrar reads:
“I am directed to inform you that the commission cannot grant your request because of a pending matter in court between some members and the association. Furthermore, the application would be put on hold pending the determination of the matter”.
The Secretary of ANLCA that this was part of the moves by the former board to ensure that they remain in office.
The amended constitution was adopted during the tenure of the former President of ANLCA, Prince Olayiwola Shittu.
Oyeniyi is said to have spent two terms as board member and wants to remain as board member for the third time.
