The Court of Appeal, Abuja division today adjourned to 14/12/17 the Appeal brought by the former national chairman of APGA, Ozo Victor Oye in Suit No: CA/A/691/M/2016 (Victor Ike Oye & Ors Vs. Ozo Nwabueze Okafor & Ano.)
This was disclosed by the Acting National Publicity Secretary of the All Progressives Grand Alliance [APGA], Onapuruagu Prince Ukaegbu Esq.
Victor Oye in the suit is seeking to stop the court from enforcing the decisions of the National Working Committee of APGA sacking him on 5 October, 2016.
It would be recalled that an Enugu High Court had in an unrelated matter (Suit No. E/192M/2017) on 22nd day of May, 2017 enforced the decisions of the NWC which Oye tried to circumvent.
Meanwhile, Oye said in Awka today that the order issued on May 22 sacking his leadership of the party’s National Working Committee was not binding on him because he was not a party in the suit.
Oye said that he did not appear and was not mentioned as either plaintiff or defendant in the matter and there was no change in the machinery and structure of APGA.
And finally he said, the party would follow legal steps to vacate the order.
In another development, the approved APGA National Chairman, Ochudo Martin Agbaso has promised to ‘build bridges and reunite hearts’ ahead of the forthcoming governorship election in Anambra State.
“We are closing ranks, we are building bridges, we are reuniting hearts to ensure we win the forth coming Governorship election in Anambra and dominate the politics of the nation in 2019,” he said.
“I call on all men of goodwill who desire to be in a political party where fairness is supreme to join us, our doors are open.
“All our brothers and sisters who may have left us due to one disagreement or the other, I urge you to return home to your family. APGA is your family.
“We need you to make the impact we desire . Let’s all join hands to build a formidable party that all of us will be proud of,” he added.
