National Chairman of All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, Chief Victor Oye, has described as a fallacy the claim by Chief Martin Agbaso that there is a Court of Appeal order against him.
It will be recalled that on July 28, 2017, Mr. Justice Dennis C. Maduechesi of Awka High Court delivered judgment against Agbaso by declaring Chief Oye the authentic National Chairman of APGA.
On the same day at the Nnewi High Court, Justice Chukwudi C. Okaa issued an interlocutory injunction restraining Agbaso and four others from “organizing, conducting or holding any congress, conference or primary election, in the name of APGA and for the purpose of selecting/nominating any gubernatorial candidate of APGA for the forthcoming 2017 Anambra State Governorship Election.”
But reacting to the decisions of the High Courts, Chief Agbaso told reporters that there was a Court of Appeal order against Oye, which he said rendered the the verdicts of the lower courts meaningless.
However, Chief Oye issued a statement, yesterday, debunking Agbaso’s claim as fallacious. The APGA Chairman stated that there was no order of any Court of Appeal against him, describing Agbaso’s claim as “wishful thinking.”
“The true position is that the Order of Mandamus, which Chief Agbaso obtained through fraudulent means at Enugu High Court is being challenged at the Court of Appeal in Enugu,” said Chief Oye.
He advised Chief Agbaso, in his best interest, to turn his attention to more fruitful endeavours.
