The APGA leadership battle between Jude Okeke, Edozie Njoku and Victor Oye has shifted from Appeal court Kano, to the court of Appeal Owerri.
Oye and Edozie are battling to set aside the judgement of the Imo state high court, Owerri which delivered was delivered on July 28, 2021. The judgement validated the Owerri convention of APGA where Edozie Njoku was elected as the National Chairman of the party. It also validated the NEC of APGA on June 15, where Njoku was removed and Jude Okeke nominated as the National Chairman of APGA. It went further to order INEC to continue to recognize Hon Chukwuma Umeoji as the candidate of the party for November 6 Anambra state governorship election.
Akelicious reported in our previous publication, it is both the Owerri and Jigawa high court judgements that INEC relied on to recognize Jude Okeke as the National Chairman of APGA and Umeoji as the candidate of the party.
The Appeal court Kano on August 10, set aside the judgement of Jigawa state high court in its entirety but fell short of giving any consequential order on the status of Oye and his factional candidate, Soludo.
Therefore, all the noise about the Appeal court Kano did not actualise their dream and their celebration was cut short.
Akelicious gathered that they have relocated to Owerri to battle the judgement at the Appeal court. The cabals are in Owerri right now for lobbying.
Meanwhile, the matter will come up for hearing tomorrow at the Appeal court Owerri. Oye has filed an application to be joined in an appeal filed by Edozie Njoku. AIF Media is being informed that the panel will rule on Oye’s leave to join tomorrow.
This is the final battle.
Whoever that wins at the Appeal Court Owerri, will take over APGA until the Supreme court rules.
Goodluck to the parties. Our wish is that Oye has overstayed his welcome and a virus in APGA.
