Appeal Court Upholds Umahi’s Senatorial Candidacy

By Adeniyi Bakare

The Court of Appeal in Abuja on Friday confirmed the Senatorial candidacy of Governor David Umahi.

Princess Agom-Eze, a chieftain of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in Ebonyi State, recently challenged Governor Umahi’s emergence as the Ebonyi South Senatorial Zone candidate, following a primary election which held in July 30, 2022.

The court thereof dismissed an appeal filed by Princess Ann Agom-Eze.

A Federal High Court sitting in Abakaliki had in August, recognise Agom-Eze as the senatorial candidate for the Zone.

The Court of Appeal in its judgement on Friday (today) set aside the High Court’s decision and all its orders.

The Appeal Court held that the High Court was wrong when it upheld Ann’s Counter-affidavit and failed to uphold the primary election of 9th June, 2022 as Governor Umahi was nominated as the APC Senatorial candidate.
