The Supreme Court has reserved judgment in the Ebonyi State governorship election appeal for a later date.
Following the parties’ adoption of their argument briefs on Monday, Justice John Okoro withheld his decision.
Remember how the Court of Appeal in Lagos had previously upheld Francis Nwifuru’s election as the legitimate governor of Ebonyi State?
Chukwuma Odii of the Peoples Democratic Party’s appeal was dismissed by the three-member panel, chaired by Justice Jummai Sankey, in a unanimous ruling.
The panel also resolved all five issues raised against the appellant and dismissed the appeal for lacking merit.
Justice Sankey held that the PDP and its candidates lacked the legal right to meddle in the internal affairs of the All Progressives Congress as it relates to the nomination of candidates.
