2023 POLL: Prof. Greg, Abia APGA Disqualified From Guber Election, Appeal Court Rules

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has declared that the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is unfit to participate in the 2023 governorship election, in Abia State, hence the party has no candidate.

 

A three-member panel of justices read by Justice Stephen Adah on Wednesday, in a unanimous verdict, had ruled that the failure of the party to conduct a valid primary election within the time as stipulated by law had unavoidably, robbed the party of the opportunity to participate in the elections.

It could be recalled that a Federal High Court in Abuja had in December, 2022 nullified the May 29, 2022 primary of APGA in Abia on the grounds of irregularities in the conduct.

 

 

The court presided over by Justice Binta Nyako then ordered the party to conduct a fresh primary within 14 days.
