Soludo drags APGA to court over disqualification


Former governor of Nigeria’s Central Bank, Prof Chukwuma Soludo , has dragged the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA to an Abuja High court over  his disqualification from participating at the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Anambra state on the party’s platform, praying that the court issue  an injunction restraining APGA, its servants, privies, agents or otherwise from preventing, refusing and or denying him the chances of participating in the Anambra State Gubernatorial Primary Election 2013.

In a motion by his lawyer, Mr. Ikechukwu Ezechukwu, a senior advocate of Nigeria, the former CBN governor told the court to set aside the decision of the APGA screening panel for violating the party’s constitution and the 1999 constitution of Nigeria.

The presiding judge, Justice Peter Affen, adjourned till today to rule on whether to entertain the matter or not.


  1. Every Nigerian adult has the right to be voted for in an election provided he or she has not been convicted for a crime. What is the reason for the disqualification of Clarles Soludo and others.

  2. Egalitarianism is the true tenet of democracy bt in Nigeria, influence and money is what matters. Where are we heading to? If ur money dnt work for u, then hw good are the people u knw.
