“The two (factional governorship) candidates still pretend to be in court. Whether in court or not in court, my position is clear here: Ikechi Emenike has gotten the flag of our party.”

Tinubu's appeal is coming following a series of disputes within the hierarchies of the party that led to a split into different factions.

The duo of Emenike and Uche Ogah emerged winners in a parallel gubernatorial primary elections held on May 26, 2022.

This development led to litigation that was filed to the Federal High Court in Abuja before a ruling was given to nullify the primary polls that saw the emergence of Emenike.

According to the ruling of the court, Ogah has affirmed the authentic gubernatorial candidate for the APC in Abia state.

However, Emenike resorted to filing an appeal to the appellate court seeking redress over the verdict of the lower court.

The appellate court in its judgement ruled that the primary election that produced Emenike was valid thereby ruling out the election that produced Ogah as APC gubernatorial candidate in Abia.

In light of this development, Tinubu has urged both parties to follow the path of dialogue to settle their differences ahead of next month's general elections.

Tinubu said:

“Please stop all court actions. Come and see me. Come home, let us resolve our matter in our living room.”
