Court Sacks Governor Umahi As Ebonyi South APC Senatorial Candidate

By - - [ News ]

Federal High Court sitting in Abakaliki has sacked Gov Dave Umahi as Ebonyi South APC Senatorial Candidate and upheld Mrs Ann Agom Eze as the authentic candidate for the Party.

Delivering his judgment on the suit, Justice Riman cited section 115 of the electoral act which forbids a person from standing two different primary elections in the same year. He said in his judgment that such a person if found claiming to participate in two primary elections risks a two year jail term. He said that the authentic senatorial candidate of the APC is Mrs Ann Agom-eze since Austin Umahi withdrew from the race.

Therefore, if Engr David Umahi files an appeal, he stands to gain two years jail bounty as stated by Justice Riman in his judgment.

Congratulations to Mrs Ann Agom-eze.
