Oye, APGA Nat’l Chairman, ignore fake news – Party



ALL Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), yesterday, stated that its national chairman remains Victor Oye.

  The party stated this to debunk rumours making the rounds that the Supreme Court had removed Oye while reviewing its October 14, 2021 judgment on his position.

  Describing the rumour as ‘utterly false and fictitious,’ a statement signed by National Legal Adviser of APGA, Sly Ezeokenwa, said the apex court did not review the judgement.

  According to Ezeokenwa, no such decision was delivered by Supreme Court on May 9 or on any other date.

  “Our attention has been drawn to an utterly false and fictitious story making the rounds wherein the Supreme Court purportedly reviewed its judgment delivered on the 14th day of October, 2021, dismissing the appeal brought by one Chief Jude Okeke against the judgment of the Court of Appeal, Kano Division. In the story which has now gone viral on various social media platforms, the apex court was reported to have ‘coronated’ one Chief Edozie Njoku as the National Chairman of APGA.

We wish to state that contrary to the wishful thinking of the naysayers, no such decision was delivered by the Supreme Court on May 9, 2022 or on any other date. It is on record that the Supreme Court in delivering its judgment aforesaid similarly dismissed the appeal brought by Chief Edozie Njoku against the ruling of the Kano Division of the Court of Appeal which dismissed his application to appeal as an interested party,” the statement reads in part.
