Ogah wins back Abia Reps seat at Appeal Court


The Lagos Division of Court of Appeal on Friday upturned the verdict of the National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal in Umuahia which dismissed the election of the member representing Isikwuato Umunneochi Federal Constituency in Abia State, Hon Amobi Ogah.

The tribunal had in a judgement in September nullified Ogah’s election, declaring the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate and current Minister of State for Labour, Nkiruka Onyejeocha, as the winner of the election.

Ogah headed for the Court of Appeal to challenge the judgment.

The Appeal Court, in its judgement, upturned the tribunal’s decision.

The appellate court said the appeal of the Labour Party candidate was meritorious and allowed same, thereby setting aside the ruling of the lower court.
