Anambra Election: Supreme Court upholds Soludo as the gubernatorial candidate for APGA

The Supreme Court has confirmed Charles Soludo, a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), as the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship candidate in the November 6th Anambra gubernatorial election.

APGA’s National Chairman, Chief Victor Oye, was also re-elected.

Justice Mary Peter Odili, speaking on behalf of a five-member panel of justices, rejected the appeal brought by one Jude Okeke on the grounds that it was an abuse of the judicial process.

Justice Odili also ordered Okeke to pay N1 million to the APGA and Chief Oye.
Remember that the APGA’s National Working Committee (NWC), chaired by Okeke, had already suspended Soludo from the party.

An Anambra High Court in Awka, however, directed INEC to reinstate Charles Soludo on the ballot on July 19.
