The Court of Appeal, sitting Owerri judicial Division, has upheld the sack of the Abia state chairman of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA), Augustine Ehiemere, and declared Prince Nnanna Ukaegbu, as the authentic chairman of the party in the state.

The court also restrained APGA from giving effect to all decisions and activities pertaining to the running of the party in the state without the involvement of Prince Ukaegbu as the state chairman.
