The Supreme Court has affirmed Professor Charles Soludo, as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state.
In the same vein, the apex court also affirmed Victor Oye as the National Chairman of the party.
The five-man panel led by Justice Mary Odili also affirmed Mr. Victor Oye as the chairman of the party.
The apex court, in a unanimous decision by a five-man panel of justices led by Justice Mary Odili, upheld the judgement of the Kano State Division of the Court of Appeal, which validated the primary election that produced Soludo.
According to the Supreme Court, the appellate court was right when it quashed a Jigawa State High Court judgement that recognised a parallel primary election that was conducted by the Jude Okeke-led faction of APGA.
The Witness reports that APGA has been engulfed in intra-party crisis, which has birthed factions, one led by Victor Oye and the other by Jude Okeke.
While Oye’s camp has Prof Charles Soludo as its governorship candidate for the November 6 election, the faction led by Okeke produced Chukwuma Umeoji.
