The Supreme Court has stricken out the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate in the 2023 governorship election in Enugu, Uche Nnaji’s appeal filed against Governor Peter Mba of the Peoples Democratic (PDP) as the winner of the election.
In a ruling on Friday, September 15, the five-man panel of the Supreme Court said that the APC legal team and that of Nnaji filed an invalid brief of argument and failed to present convincing evidence before the court.
The court ruled that APC and its candidate did not give a cogent reason why their brief should be allowed.
Justice Tijani Abubakar of the apex court held that since the APC and its candidate’s brief were found to be invalid, the ruling also affected the appeal upon which the appeal was filed.
The court then dismissed the brief and appeal filed by the APC and Nnaji.
