Anambra Governorship Election:Supreme Court affirms Soludo

The Supreme Court in Abuja has affirmed Professor Charles Soludo, the former Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, as the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, for the November 6th governorship election in Anambra state.

The five man panel of the apex court, led by justice Mary Odili in a unanimous decision upheld the judgement of the Kano State Division of the Court of Appeal, which validated the primary election that produced professor Soludo.

The Supreme Court held that the appellate court was right in quashing the judgement of Jigawa state high that recognised a parallel primary election conducted by the Jude Okeke-led faction of APGA.
