Appeal Court Declares Ozigbo PDP Guber Candidate For Anambra

The Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal has declared Valentine Ozigbo as the validly elected governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), for the November 6 governorship election in Anambra.

Delivering judgment, the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban- Mensem, who led a three-man panel of justices, held that the appeal filed by Mr. Ozigbo, challenging the judgment of the Akwa High Court had merit.

The appellate court set aside the decision of the Akwa Division of the State High Court and declared it null and void.

It also awarded the sum of N10 million exemplary cost in favor of Ozigbo.

The judgment of the Awka high court had barred Mr. Ozigbo from parading himself as the PDP candidate in the Anambra gubernatorial election coming up on November 6.
