VIDEO: Edozie Njoku presents Supreme Court CTC on APGA ruling, warns detractors
The National Chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Chief Edozie Njoku, has condemned the rather hasty judgement issued by Justice James Omotosho of the Federal High Court, Abuja, in total disregard of the Supreme Court ruling read by Hon. Justice Garba Lawal on March 24, 2023.
Justice Lawal, while reading the unanimous Judgement of the entire panelists, ordered that Victor Ikechukwu Oye’s name be deleted from suit number SC/CV/687/2021, in line with page 13 of Chief Njoku s application, and be replaced with “Edozie Njoku” as National Chairman of APGA.
He described Njoku as a meddlesome interloper in the suit, seeking to reap where he did not sow.
Omotosho also dismissed the suit brought by Chief Chekwas Okorie and others seeking to be recognized as authentic APGA candidates for the 2023 general election.
The applicants had approached the court following the Supreme Court judgement which recognised Njoku and his faction as the authentic APGA leadership and APGA candidates.
On his part, Oye has said that media reports on the Supreme Court judgement that the apex court had replaced him (Oye) with Njoku were fake.
Addressing a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Abuja, Oye described Njoku as a man unknown to APGA, stressing that there was no judgement by the Supreme Court on Friday, contrary to reports in the media.
Addressing journalists on Thursday, Njoku presented the Certified True Copy (CTC) of the Supreme Court on APGA ruling and warned detractors, including Oye and Justice Omotosho. Read more.
