The Supreme Court of Nigeria on Thursday affirmed Prof. Charles Soludo as the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) in Anambra State.
The Anambra Governorship election will take place November 6, 2021.
The five-man panel unanimously upheld the judgement of the Kano State Division of the Court of Appeal, which validated the primary election that produced Soludo.
The panel was chaired by Justice Mary Odili.
The panel also affirmed Mr. Victor Oye as the chairman of the party.
The apex court said the Appeal Court’s judgment nullifying the ruling of the Jigawa State High Court on the matter was in order.
Soludo had emerged victorious at the primary election conducted by the Oye faction of APGA in Anambra State.
But the Jigawa State High Court nullified the election and upheld the parallel primary election conducted by the Jude Okeke-led faction of APGA.
The case dragged on to the Supreme Court which upheld the primary election conducted by the Oye faction of the party.
