Chairmanship: Court Of Appeal Affirms Udeze As AA Chairman
The Court of Appeal in Abuja has affirmed Barrister Kenneth Udeze as the national chairman of the Action Alliance (AA).
A three-member panel of justices presided by Justice Hamma Akawu Barka on Friday held that the appeal lacked merit and dismissed same.
The panel also awarded the cost of N4 million against Adekunle Rufai Omoaje in favour of Chief (Barr) Kenneth Udeze and three other respondents.
The appeal was filed by one Adekunle Rufai Omoaje in Appeal number: CA/ABJ/CV/955/2022 challenging the judgement of the FCT High Court in suit number: FCT/HC/CV/174/2022 delivered on March 28, 2022, by Justice Eleojo Enenche, which had affirmed Udeze as the AA national chairman as validated by the March 14, 2021 national convention of the party.
Reacting to the judgment, the spokesman of the AA, Rev. Dennis Ubani, said it has put to rest the prolonged legal tussle over the chairmanship position of the party.
He expressed gratitude to the Nigerian judiciary, which he described as the last hope for a common man while thanking the legal team led by Mike Kaase Aondoakaa (SAN).
