The court of appeal sitting in Lagos has dismissed the appeal by Barr. Chijioke Okereke of the Labour Party against his sack by the Enugu State National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal as the member representing Aninri/Awgu/Oji-River Federal Constituency.
The judges in a judgement delivered on Monday, ruled that the appeal against the tribunal ruling that Engr. Anayo Onwuegbu (Omeihe-Ukwu) is the rightful winner of the election lacks merit.
The three-man panel led by Justice Nusirat I. Umar declared Engr. Anayo Onwuegbu (Omeihe-Ukwu), the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, as the duly elected candidate of the February 25th, 2023 poll.
