The chairman of the All Progressives Grand Alliance [APGA], Ochudo Martin Agbaso, on Friday, stormed the national secretariat of the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC].
Mr Agbaso, during the visit, was armed with the various court rulings with the sole aim of serving the electoral body the said documents.
Elombah.com gathered that the APGA chairman also seized the opportunity to submit the programs/letter of 21 days notice for Congress/primary of Anambra governorship election.
Mr Agbaso had in his entourage the following:
1. A.D Musa, national Secretary
2. Chief jerry Obasi, Dep. National chairman, south
3. Chief Okechukwu Nkolagu, national vice chairman, south east
4. Comrade Chuks Nwoga, national youth leader, and,
5. Hundred s of other APGA faithfuls across the nation
The entourage was received by the acting chairman of INEC in the absence of the chairman who is currently outside the country.
Recall that the Enugu High Court had issued an order of mandamus demanding that Mr Agbaso be recognised as the authentic chairman of APGA.
The former chairman, Ozo Victor Oye, however, backed by the Anambra State governor, Willie Obiano, challenged the ruling in the Appellate Court, which court affirmed the order.
The duo of Victor Oye and Governor Obiano approached the court with six Senior Advocates of Nigeria [SANs] and 10 other senior lawyers to intimidate the judge.
Meanwhile, Agbaso was represented by a junior lawyer of less than five years’ experience.
In what was described as the epic battle between David and Goliath, the law tilted in favour of Agbaso and his junior representative.
Thus, armed with both judgements, Agbaso visited INEC to seek enforcement of his right to chairmanship and to place matters in the right perspective.
