The All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has commended the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for listing Prof. Charles Soludo and Dr Onyekachikwu Ibezim.
The duo are listed as the party’s Anambra governorship candidate and deputy for the Nov. 6 governorship election.
APGA gave the commendation in a statement signed by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr Tex Okechukwu, on Thursday in Abuja.
Okechukwu said the party was glad that after several weeks of suspense and confusion, INEC had brought some respite by obeying the Kano Court of Appeal judgment.
He congratulated APGA’s supporters for their steadfastness, courage and loyalty.
“We thank our numerous supporters, well-wishers and friends across party lines for standing by us throughout the trying period.
A Court of Appeal sitting in Kano affirmed Mr Victor Oye as APGA’s chairman and Soludo was elected governorship candidate of the party during a primary organised by the Oye-led faction.
The party insisted that it did not have any factional group because the Oye-led executive was the genuine one as supported by its constitution.
