The five-member panel of justices led by Mary Peter-Odili also affirmed Victor Oye as the national chairman of the party.

The apex court unanimously upheld the judgment of the Kano state appeal court division which validated the primary election that produced Soludo.

According to the supreme court, the appellate court was right when it quashed a Jigawa state high court judgment that recognised a parallel primary election that was conducted by the Okeke-led faction of APGA.

Recall that the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had earlier picked Michael Umeoji as the party’s candidate.

However, a court of appeal sitting in Kano on August 10 affirmed Oye as national chairman of APGA — meaning the return of Soludo as the governorship candidate.
