Must read

The Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos on Friday affirmed the election of Dr. Peter Mbah as the duly elected Governor of Enugu State.

The Enugu Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal had upheld the election of Mbah in the March 18th Governorship election but his opponent, Chijioke Edeoga of the Labour Party, who was not satisfied with the decision of the tribunal, proceeded to Appeal court to challenge the decision of the panel.

But in a judgement delivered on Friday, the Appeal Court dismissed the appeals of Edeoga as lacking in merit.

All the three issues raised by Edeoga as grounds of appeal were resolved in favour of Mbah of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
