Former Chief Judge of Anambra State, Peter Umeadi, has emerged the presidential flag bearer of the Victor Oye-led faction of All Progressive Grand Alliance, APGA.

According to reports, Umeadi clinched the presidential ticket at a special convention attended by factional party leaders and members drawn from the six geopolitical zones of the country at the Katampe-Abuja national headquarters of the party.

The troubled party accredited 150 delegates, affirmed the candidacy of Umeadi by a voice vote.

Speaking about the election, Victor Oye, a factional national chairman of the party expressed optimism that Umeadi would be sworn in as President of Nigeria in 2023.

The party has been torn between Edozie Njoku and Victor Oye, both claiming to be the substantive national chairman of the party.

Recall, Njoku was sacked as APGA national chairman by the lower court in Jigawa State and went on to lose in the appellate court as well.

He thereafter took his search for justice to the Supreme Court, which according to him, later recognized him as the national chairman of the party, after writing the apex court to revisit its error of October 14, 2021 ruling.
