The Supreme Court in Abuja has affirmed a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo, as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the Anambra State governorship election scheduled for November 6, 2021.
The Supreme Court gave the judgment on Thursday and also returned Chief Victor Oye as the National Chairman of APGA.
In a judgment of a five-man panel of justices, the apex dismissed the appeal filed by one Jude Okeke on the ground of being an abuse of the court process.
Justice Mary Peter Odili, who delivered the lead judgment, awarded a sum of N1 million to be paid by Jude Okeke to APGA and Victor Oye.
Also, she upheld the judgment of the Court of Appeal (Kano Division), which had earlier dismissed Okeke’s suit.
