Federal High Court Abakaliki Strikes Out Suit Seeking To Recognize Umahi As Senatorial Candidate For Ebonyi South.

The court affirmed Ann Agomeze as the authentic APC senatorial candidate for Ebonyi South Senatorial district.

Gov. Umahi through his counsel and elder brother, Roy Nwaze had dragged the Independent National Electoral Commission,INEC to the FHC sitting in Abakaliki, to compel the commission to recognize Umahi as the authentic senatorial candidate for Ebonyi South.

Nwaze argued that the governor’s name should be recognized by INEC, hence the first winner of the election which took place in Afikpo North LGA of the senatorial district.

Also, Mudi Erhenedi, a counsel to Senator Mike Nnachi , who is representing Ebonyi South senatorial zone and candidate of the PDP had approached the same court to be joined in the suit, with the aim of stopping Umahi from being enlisted by INEC.
