The Supreme Court has affirmed Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) former governor, Charles Soludo, as authentic gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) candidate for the Anambra gubernatorial election scheduled for next month.
Aside from authenticating Soludo’s case, the court also certified faction of the party led by Victor Oye, as a bonafide executive of the party in the country.
The judgements were delivered on Thursday by a five-man judicial panel led by Justice Mary Odili, barely 22 days to the election scheduled for November 6th.
The apex court upheld the judgement of the Kano State Division of the Court of Appeal, which validated the primary election that produced Soludo as APGA candidate.
According to the Supreme Court, the appellate court was right when it quashed a Jigawa State High Court judgement that recognised a parallel primary election that was conducted by the Jude Okeke-led faction of APGA.
It will be recalled that Soludo emerged from the primary election that was organised by the Oye-led faction of the party in the state
