Appeal Court Nullifies Jigawa High Court Judgement, Awards  Financial Cost Against Okeke, Umeoji, Orogbu

The Court of Appeal, Kano Division, has nullified the judgment that sacked Chief Victor Ike Oye as APGA National Chairman.

The Special Panel of the court led by Justice Tsammani held that Justice Musa Ubale of Birkin Kudu Division of Jigawa State High Court was biased in handling the case, having contravened section thirty-six of the 1999 Constitution of Federal Republic of Nigeria, since Supreme Court has held that no man can ever have a verdict entered against him on a matter relating to his Civil Rights or Obligations before a Court or Tribunal, without being given an opportunity of being heard and lacks jurisdiction to adjudicate the matter.

 

The three-member panel of Justices, presided over by Justice Tsammani, Maiwada Abdullahi and Musale, in an unanimous judgment while declaring that Mr. Jude Okeke and his group are “meddlesome interlopers”, held that the proceedings of the Jigawa High Court which led to wrongfully sack of Chief Victor Oye as party National Chairman, thereafter, ordering INEC to recognize Jude Okeke “purported” faction must not be allowed to stand because it’s untenable, miscarriage of justice, and rascality of politicians because Jigawa State High Court lacks jurisdiction to adjudicate the matter.

 

Appeal Court declared that the alleged APGA Convention was held in 2019, and not in 2021, therefore a time frame doesn’t apply, Nullifying the Jigawa judgment, the Appellant court also ordered Jude Okeke, Honourable Chukwuma Umeoji and Lilian Orogbu to pay heavy sum to APGA and Oye, and ordered INEC to rise up and take responsibility.
