Court reaffirms Jude Okeke as APGA national chairman

 

APGA national chairman
Jude Okeke has been reaffirmed as the authentic National Chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) by an Imo State High Court sitting in Owerri.

Justice Vivian Isiguzo, who delivered the judgment on the applications on Thursday, August 18 after an application of stay of execution and leave to appeal by the Victor Oye-led faction of APGA on the earlier judgment of the court on the matter, also directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to recognize all correspondence from Okeke’s faction for the November 6 governorship election in Anambra State.

Though Victor Oye’s leave to appeal the judgment was granted, the court, however, refused to grant the prayer on stay of execution.

Counsel to Okeke, Collins Asikilobi who reacted to the court judgment stated that all consequentia orders made by the trial court were binding on all parties involved in the matter until the appellate court says otherwise.

Chairman of APGA in Imo, who is loyal to the Victor Oye led faction, described the judgment as a kangaroo ruling, adding that the court’s decision would not stand and would be upturned in the Court of Appeal.
