Anambra 2021: Supreme Court Affirms Soludo As APGA’s Candidate

Governor Chukwuma Soludo of Anambra State

The former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Prof. Charles Soludo, was on Thursday affirmed by the Supreme Court as candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) for the November 6 governorship election in Anambra state.

In a unanimous decision by a five-man panel of Justices led by Justice Mary Odili, the apex court upheld the judgement of the Kano State Division of the Court of Appeal, which validated the primary election that produced Soludo.

The Supreme Court held that the appellate court was right when it quashed a Jigawa State High Court judgement that recognised a parallel primary election that was conducted by the Jude Okeke-led faction of APGA.
