APGA crisis: Gov Obiano wins, as Appeal Court sacks Agbaso


Respite came the way of Anambra Governor, Chief Willie Obiano on Wednesday as the Enugu Division of the Court of Appeal gave its judgement in favour of his faction of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

Obiano’s faction led by Victor Oye has already conducted its primary for the Anambra guber election, with Obiano emerging winner.

However, until now, his fate was hanging in the balance following an order of an Enugu High Court, presided over by R.A Ozoemena, which had removed Oye as chairman and replaced him with Martin Agbaso.

But in a lead judgement Wednesday, the three-man Appeal Court judges sacked Agbaso and reinstated Oye.

All the grounds of appeal were resolved in Oye’s favour.
