Nigeria’s Federal High Court Removes Victor Umeh as APGA Chairman

A Federal High Court in Abuja, Wednesday gave judgement in favour of litigant Maxi Okwu in the long-drawn leadership tussle between him and Victor Umeh for the National Chairmanship of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), the ruling party in the South-East State of Anambra.

Chief Okwu, who was elected on April 8, 2013 during an APGA Congress held at the Women Development Centre in Awka, the Anambra State capital, insists that Sir Umeh’s tenure has expired.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is joined in the suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/563/2013 seeking Umeh’s removal and that of the secretary of his faction, Alhaji Shinkafi.
Umeh has reportedly filed a Notice of Appeal and Stay of Execution of the judgement.
