Appeal Court pronounces Dave Umahi authentic APC Senatorial candidate

A Court of Appeal in Abuja has just ruled in favour of Dave Umahi as the authentic APC Senatorial candidate in the forthcoming 2023 election.

ENigeria Newspaper reports that in its judgment today the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal of Ann Nwanyibuife Agom-Eze and confirmed the Senatorial candidacy of Engr David Nweze Umahi.

The Court set aside the judgment of the Federal High Court and all the orders it made.

The Court of Appeal also held that the court was wrong when it upheld Ann’s Counter-affidavit and failed to uphold the primary election of 9th June, 2022 where Governor Umahi was nominated as the APC Senatorial candidate, as the nomination was never challenged by anybody within 14 days as prescribed by section 285(9) of the 1999 Constitution.

It also proceeded to grant all the reliefs sought by Governor Umahi and the APC in the trial court.
