The Supreme Court in Abuja has on Thursday upheld Professor Chukwuma Soludo as the gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) in the Anambra State governorship elections slated for November 6.
The Supreme Court Thursday cleared Soludo as APGA governorship candidate even as it also returned Chief Victor Oye as the National Chairman of APGA.
The apex court in a judgment of a five-man panel of justices dismissed the appeal filed by one Jude Okeke was dismissed on the ground of being an abuse of the court process.
Justice Mary Peter Odili, who delivered the lead judgment, awarded a sum of N1 million to be paid by Jude Okeke to APGA and Victor Oye.
She also upheld the judgment of the Court of Appeal (Kano Division), which had earlier dismissed Okeke’s suit.
