According to the party, on July 1, 2021, Justice Nganjiwa had ordered that the name of Chief Edozie Njoku be forwarded to INEC as the rightful candidate of the Party, but two weeks later, Soludo and Oye are laying claims to that order. “It is pertinent to instruct that staff of John Holts do not get paid by Leventis”, it said.
In a press release signed by Muhyideen Imam, National Secretary of the party, the stated “It is glaring that Oye and his group having lost grip on the leadership of the Party, and almost all the cases they filed, with the hope to validate their illegality, have now resorted to claiming orders that were granted in favour of other people.
Below is a breakdown of how Oye and his cohorts engaged in Forum Shopping
1. Barr. Ezeokenwa Sylvester filed Suit A/201 at the Awka High Court. Ezeokenwa is the National Legal Adviser to Chief Oye.
2. Sir. Pete Ibida, member of the Anambra State House of Assembly filed Suit A/202, with exactly similar prayers as the Suit A/201. Sir. Pete Ibida is a protégé of Ozonkpu Victor Oye faction.

5. Deacon Samson Olalere filed Suit I/512/2019 at the Oyo State High Court against Oye; where both of them got a consent judgment and he was rewarded by being appointed as the Chairman of the illegal Governorship primaries that produced Prof. Soludo.
6. APGA Vs INEC Suit FHC/AWK/39/21 is at the Federal High Court Awka. P. I. N Ikwueto appeared for APGA in this case and has been appearing for the Oye/Soludo faction.
We wish to advice the National Judicial Council to advice the Judges accordingly; because Oye and his minions have no shame. They have the propensity to drag the reputation of the judiciary to the mud. The public perception is that the Judges being featured in Oye’s cases are usually stage managed. This abuse of court processes must be stopped”.
