Just In: Supreme Court Affirms Charles Soludo As APGA Governorship Candidate
Supreme Court has on Thursday, October 14 affirmed Charles Chukwuma Soludo, former governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), as the governorship candidate of All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the November 6 election in Anambra state.
In a judgment of a five-man panel of justices of the court, the appeal filed by one Jude Okeke was dismissed on the ground of being an abuse of court process, TheCable reports.
Also, the five-member panel of justices led by Mary Peter-Odili affirmed Victor Oye as the national chairman of the party.
Justice Odili, who delivered the lead judgment, awarded a sum of N1 million to be paid by Jude Okeke to APGA and Victor Oye.
The justice upheld the judgment of the Court of Appeal, Kano Division, which had earlier dismissed Okeke’s suit.
