Anambra gov: APGA chieftain asks court to stop Soludo


Charles Soludo

A chieftain of the All Progressive Grand Alliance, Okoye Nwabuogo, has approached the Federal High Court Abuja seeking for an order to set aside the election and nomination of the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Professor Charles Soludo, as the Anambra State candidate of the party.

The suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/596/2021, was dated and filed on July 6, 2021 by the counsel to Nwabuogo, Okoro Nkemakolam.

In the processes sighted by The PUNCH, the APGA Chieftain also prayed the court to restrain Soludo from parading himself as the flagbearer of the party for the election billed to hold November 6, 2021 or on any other date.

He also prayed the court for an

order of injunction against the Independent National Electoral Commission from

accepting or recognizing Soludo as the candidate of APGA for the Anambra State

gubernatorial election scheduled to hold on November 6, 2021.

Nwabuogo asked the court to nullify the Special Ward Congress of the party held on June 15, 2021 and the Primary Election of the party on June 23, 2021 that resulted in the nomination and election of Soludo. The defendants in the suit are APGA, Soludo, and the IINEC as first to third defendants respectively.
