BREAKING: Appeal Court affirms Ebonyi gov’s election, dismisses PDP appeal 

The Court of Appeal, Lagos Division, on Friday, affirmed the election of Fran­cis Nwifuru as the duly elected governor of Ebonyi State in the March 18 governorship election. 

The three-member panel presided over by Justice Jummai Sankey, in its unanimous decision, dismissed the appeal filed by Chukwuma Odii of the Peoples Democratic Party. 

The panel also resolved all the five issues raised against the appellant and dismissed the appeal for lacking in merit. 

Justice Sankey, in her lead judgment, held that the PDP and its candidate lacked the legal right to meddle in the internal affairs of the All Progressives Congress as it relates to the nomination of candidates.
