Appeal Court affirms Udeze as Action Alliance national chairman


Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, has affirmed Chief (Barrister) Kenneth Udeze as the authentic National Chairman of the Action Alliance, AA.

The appellate court, in a judgement delivered on Friday by a three-man panel of Justices presided over by Hon. Justice H.A. Barka, also awarded a cost of N4million against one Adekunle Rufai Omoaje in favour of Udeze and other three respondents.

Omoaje had in Appeal Number: CA/ABJ/CV/955/2022, challenging the judgement of an FCT High Court in suit number: FCT/HC/CV/174/2022 delivered on March 28, 2022 by Hon. Justice Eleojo Enenche, which had earlier affirmed Udeze as the authentic national chairman of AA and validated the March 14, 2021 national convention of the party.

In a related development, the three-man panel of Justices of the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal, led by Hon. JUstice H.A. Barka, on Friday, also affirmed Udeze as the authentic National Chairman of Action Alliance in Appeal Number: CA/ABJ/CV/526/2022, filed by one Chief Uzewuru Nwachukwu.

The parties in the appeal availed themselves at the Court of Appeal mediation center and amicably settled all issues as regarding the position of the national chairmanship of AA in favour of Udeze and was adopted by all parties, which the Appeal Court entered as a judgement in favour of Udeze as the authentic national chairman of AA.

With the two Court of Appeal judgements on Friday, January 26, 2024, affirming Chief Kenneth Udeze as the authentic national chairman of Action Alliance, it has now finally put to rest the protracted legal tussle on the national chairmanship of AA.

Reacting to the judgements, the party’s National Publicity Secretary, Rev. Dennis I. Ubani, expressed profound gratitude to the Judiciary, saying that indeed it is the last hope for a common man.

He said: “We thank our party legal team led by Chief Michael Kaase Aondoakaa (SAN), former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, for a diligent prosecution of the matters.

“We thank all the party faithful across Nigeria and beyond for their prayers, and we urge you to have faith and always support Chief Barr. Kenneth Udeze-led National Executives of the Action Alliance (AA).”
