The Supreme Court of Nigeria has affirmed the Ebonyi south senatorial candidacy of Governor Dave Umahi.
The latest ruling was held on Friday in Abuja and had the dismissal of an appeal challenging the All Progressive Congress’ (APC) Ebonyi south senatorial candidate.
A five-man panel of the apex court led by Justice MO. Kekere-Ekun made the decision against the appeal of Princess Ann Agom-Eze who claimed that she is APC’s authentic candidate for the zone.
Candidreporters.com gathered that the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on September 30, had affirmed Umahi’s ticket.
Recall that Mrs Agom-eze emerged second in the senatorial primary of the APC that was won by Austin Umahi, the younger brother of Gov Umahi in May 28, 2022.
The governor had contested the APC presidential primary in Abuja but lost to Bola Tinubu, a former governor of Lagos.
After his defeat at the presidential primary, his younger brother was said to have willfully returned his ticket to the governor.
