Enugu Guber: Appeal Court Affirms Ayogu Eze APC Guber Candidate
Appeal Court has affirmed Senator Ayogu Eze as the governorship candidate of the all progressive congress for the Saturday governorship election.
The Appellate Court in a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Abdul Aboki upheld the appeal filed by Senator Ayogu Eze to affirm his candidacy as the rightfully nominated candidate to represent the party.
In the judgment, the Court of Appeal set aside the judgment of Justice Iyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja who had earlier ordered inec to replace him with one Barrister George Ogara as the APC governorship in Enugu state.
Justice Aboki voided the Federal High Court decision on the grounds that the suit brought before it had become statu barred and not competent in law having been filed outside the mandatory fourteen days stipulated by section 285 subsection 9 of the 1999 constitution.
