Chief Edozie Njoku, APGA’s National Chairman, has requested Governor Charles Soludo of Anambra State to champion a climate of tranquility within the party.
Njoku’s appeal comes in the wake of a Tuesday ruling by the Abuja High Court that rejected forgery allegations made against him by the Nigeria Police Force.
Njoku and the political party’s Youth leader, Chukwuemeka Nwoga, were charged to court by the Nigeria Police Force on November 22, 2022, on allegations of conspiring with others to tamper with a Supreme Court judgment by Justice Mary Peter Odili (rtd).
Accusing Soludo of misplaced priorities, Njoku suggests that rather than investing in the party that paved his way to Anambra State’s governorship, Soludo is depleting state finances to fight against him, detrimentally impacting the party.
He advised the governor to join the All Progressives Congress, APC, if he so wished and allow the core members of APGA to stay in the party in peace.
Addressing reporters in Abuja, Njoku said, ‘Political litigation is something we’ll keep going through [in Nigeria].’
‘Everybody knows my case. It is not going to be perfect. It was from this court that I went and spent two days in the prison but since that day I keep saying that justice will come at last, especially when billionaires are involved.’
‘There’s a governor of the state who is using the state resources to unleash a war against me for what reason I don’t know. Maybe he thinks I’m not going to be a rubber-stamp who he will be controlling but he might be joking.’
‘He might not be serious. All I’m asking Charles Soludo to do is let us have peace in AGPA. If he wants to join APC that’s not a problem but he should allow those who believe in AGPA to settle down. I’m calling on Charles Soludo, let’s end it now.’
