“What the Supreme Court nullified was the judgment of the Kano Court of Appeal on the basis that issues of political Party leadership tussle is non-justiciable, but Kano Court of Appeal did not make Chief Jude Okeke Chairman and the Supreme Court did not nullify the NEC meeting decision that appointed him Chairman of APGA.

“The Supreme Court declared that issues of political party squabbles are non-justiciable hence did not declare Victor Oye as Chairman of APGA and neither did the Court of Appeal, Kano Division.

“The Deputy National Chairman of the Party, Alhaji Rabiu Aliyu has conceded to the Chairmanship of the Party of Chief Jude Okeke in line with the decision of the Supreme Court that internal party squabbles of political parties are non-justiciable and can only be resolved by political parties.

“The removal of Edozie Njoku from office by NEC of our Party still remains valid as this issue of his removal was never decided by the Court and still remains unchallenged.

“Jude Okeke, as national chairman, shall be calling a meeting of all relevant APGA stakeholders to resolve all pending leadership issues in line with the judgment of the Supreme Court.

“All APGA members should hold fast and remain resolute as we shall overcome in the end.”
