The Court of Appeal, Awka Division, headed by Hon Justice C Nwosu-Iheme has dismissed with heavy costs, the applications filed by Chief Edozie Njoku, Jude Okeke and Hon Wilson Onyekwelu.
While ruling on the applications earlier yesterday, the court noted that the applications filed by the applicants were grossly incompetent and dismissed them with heavy costs in favour of the Chief Victor Oye led APGA.
The Presiding Justice particularly frowned at the manner various frivolous suits were instituted in respect of Anambra State Governorship primary election of APGA in various States outside Anambra, despite the admonitions of the Supreme Court on territorial jurisdictions of State High court.
Justice Nwosu Iheme, who was livid with anger, called for severe and immediate disciplinary measures against the Judges and Counsels involved in the spurious judgments obtained in High Courts in Jigawa State, Imo State and the Federal Capital Tertiary, FCT, for bringing the image of the judiciary to disrepute and public ridicule.
Recall that Justice C.C. Okaa had delivered an emphatic judgment reaffirming Dr. Oye as the National Chairman, and Professor Chukwuma Soludo, as the undisputable governorship candidate of APGA, with motions filed by the appellants challenging the judgment dismissed.
Honourable Chukwuma Umeoji had paid for nomination forms and also went for screening at the Dr. Oye led National Executive, as the only legally sanctioned and INEC recognized officers of APGA, and when he was disqualified with four others, he appointed one Jude Okeke, who is unknown to APGA, as his own new National Chairman, who joined in shopping for Courts and Judges to give them frivolous court orders, such as ones obtained in Jigawa, Imo States and the FCT.
