Anambra Guber : Appeal Court affirms Soludo as APGA candidate

 …Calls for immediate Sanction of Judges in Jigawa, Abuja Judicial Heist  

 An  Appeal Court sitting in Awka, Anambra State  has  affirmed  Chukwuma Charles  Soludo   as the  governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in November 6 gubernatorial election.

  The petitions  filed by Chief Edozie Njoku, Jude Okeke, and Hon Wilson Onyekwelu were dismissed with  costs by the Court of Appeal, Awka Division, led by Presiding Justice Hon Justice C. Nwosu-Iheme.

The Court  highlighted in its judgement on the petitions on Monday, August 2nd, 2021, that the applicants’ applications were severely incompetent and so liable to be dismissed.

The Presiding Justice was particularly critical of the way various frivolous suits were filed in connection with the APGA’s primary election for Governor of Anambra State in various states outside of Anambra, despite the Supreme Court’s admonition that State High Courts have territorial jurisdiction.

The presiding Justice, enraged, demanded harsh and immediate disciplinary action against the judges and counsel involved in the bogus judgments obtained in Jigawa State, Imo State, and the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory for bringing the judiciary’s image into disrepute and public ridicule.

It will be recalled that Justice C.C. Okaa issued an unequivocal ruling reaffirming Dr. Ike Victor Oye as APGA’s National Chairman and Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo, CFR, as the party’s undeniable governorship candidate. The appellants have filed motions to overturn the decision.
