    The Court of Appeal sitting in the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja on Friday upheld the senatorial candidacy of the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi.

    The Appeal Court dismissed an appeal by Ann Nwanyibuife Agom-Eze and also set aside the judgment of the Federal High Court and all its orders.

    According to the Court of Appeal, the Federal High Court was wrong for upholding Ann’s Counter-affidavit and failing to uphold the primary election of 9th June 2022 where Umahi was nominated as the APC Senatorial candidate

    The Appeal Court ruled that nobody challenged Umahi’s nomination as APC senatorial candidate within 14 days as prescribed by section 285(9) of the 1999 Constitution.

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