A stakeholder of the All Progressives Grand Alliance from the southeast, Chief Obiora Ugwu, has written to the President of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, on the lingering intra-party crisis ravaging the national leadership of APGA.

It comes on the heels of theconflicted court judgement which purportedly sacked Barrister Sly Ezeokenwa, and affirmed Chief Edozie Njoku as the authentic APGA national chairman by the court of the land.

Earlier, Obiora Ugwu, the party chieftain, in an open letter, signed and addressed to the President of Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu, made available to newsmen on Saturday, drew tinubu’s attention to the lingering and abuse of the judiciary by the Independent National Electoral Commission on APGA leadership tussle between Chief Edozie Njoku and Chief Victor Oye, Barr Sly Ezeokenwa.

According to him, “the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) is a national political party that has her stronghold in the southeast and which some people referred to it as the identity of southeast.

“The leadership tussle has been going on since 2018, the supreme court delivered a judgement on March 24th, 2023 that settled the matter reaffirming Chief Edozie Njoku as the national chairman of APGA and supreme court directed INEC to recognize Njoku with immediate effect.

Ugwu regretted the INEC chairman, Professor Mahmoud Yakubu, had refused to carry out the order issued by the supreme court of the Federal Republic of Nigeria since then.

The APGA stakeholder partly stated: “This has become a ridicule to the entire world and Nigeria in particular. No same nation disobeys the supreme court judgement.

“This open letter is for you Mr President to wade into this matter to save the face of the Nigeria judiciary. The Governor of Anambra state and also the leader of APGA, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, has continued to use money to sit on INEC chairman, Mahmud from carrying out the directives of the supreme court, thereby ridiculing the Nigeria judiciary.

“Southeast and all APGA stakeholders are hanging on, expecting that the orders must be respected. Mr President, please we ask you to save APGA from the hands of Soludo and INEC chairman. Mahmud Yakubu

“You can recall that Prof Soludo worked against your party(APC) in the last elections with the hope that PDP will win so that he will decamp.


“APGA is the last political hope of the igbos. We’re looking forward to your anticipated intervention Mr President”.
