APGA embattled Anambra governorship candidate rejects court judgement


The factional Acting National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Jude Okeke; and the candidate of the party in the forthcoming Anambra State governorship election, Chukwuma Umeoji, have rejected the judgment of the Court of Appeal sitting in Kano, which set aside the judgment of a Jigawa State High Court, which had earlier declared them the authentic chairman and candidate of the party, respectively.

According to a statement issued by the National Publicity Secretary of APGA, Ikechukwu Chukwunyere, on Tuesday, Okeke’s lawyers have been instructed to take all necessary steps to appeal the judgment at the Supreme Court.

It was titled, ‘Anambra Governorship: Umeoji, Jude Okeke Reject Appeal Court Judgment, Head to Court…Instruct Lawyers to Immediately Head to Supreme Court…Say Judgement a Temporary Setback…to Proceed with Campaign Pending Supreme Court Judgment…Insist Law was Turned Upside Down by the Court of Appeal.’ 

Chukwunyere dismissed the appellate court’s judgment as “a mere temporary setback which will be set aside by the Supreme Court as quickly and easily as possible.”
