“Soludo is APGA’s governorship candidate” – Supreme Court
The Supreme Court of Nigeria has affirmed Prof. Charles Soludo as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra State.
The Anambra Governorship election will take place November 6, 2021.
The five-man panel unanimously upheld the judgment of the Kano State Division of the Court of Appeal, which validated the primary election that produced Soludo.
The panel was chaired by Justice Mary Odili.
According to the Supreme Court, the appellate court was right when it quashed a Jigawa State High Court judgment that recognised a parallel primary election that was conducted by the Jude Okeke-led faction of APGA.
It will be recalled that Soludo emerged from the primary election that was organised by the Chief Victor Oye-led faction of the party. The panel also affirmed Mr. Victor Oye as the chairman of the party
