Anambra guber: Court reinstates Soludo as APGA candidate


An Awka High Court on Monday reinstated a former helmsman of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, as the authentic candidate of the All Progressives Congress for the November 6, 2021 governorship election in the state.

The court presided over by Justice Charles Okey also declared Ozomkpu Victor Oye as the authentic national chairman of APGA.

Soludo had been excluded from the list of 34 governorship candidates published by INEC on June 16, 2021.

INEC had instead listed Chief Chukwuma Umeoji as the party’s governorship candidate, citing an order of the court.
