There was jubilation on Thursday when the Supreme Court in Abuja cleared a former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Prof. Charles Chukwuma Soludo as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Grand Alliance in the Anambra State governorship election scheduled for November 6.
The apex court 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.
