Former governor of the CBN, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, on Monday, July 19, rejoin the race ahead of the governorship election in Anambra.
Soludo was cleared to return as the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), by a federal high court sitting in Awka, the Anambra capital, The Cable reports.
In the verdict read by the judge, Chukwudi Okaa, said the other parties in the suit, comprising Jude Okeke, Edozie Njoku, and Chukwuma Umeoji, were “meddlesome interlopers”.
The court also upheld Victor Oye as the national chairman of APGA and ordered the Independent National Electoral Party (INEC) to recognize Soludo as the gubernatorial candidate in Anambra.
Reacting to the judgment in his conversation with journalists in Abuja on Monday, Oye said the decision has once again proven the independence of the judiciary.
