The Federal High Court sitting in Umuahia, Abia state and presided by Justice Evelyn Anyadike of Federal High Court 1 has today declared Hon. Chief Emeka Atuma as the duly nominated Senatorial Candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Abia Central zone in the forthcoming 2023 general elections.
The much awaited judgement arrived amidst recent public uncertainty on who is the authentic winner of APC primaries for Abia central senatorial zone election; for which Hon. Sam Onuigbo, a serving member of the House of Representatives for Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency has been laying claims as the authentic candidate of APC and even approached the Federal high court Umuahia for to lend credence to his claim.
Delivering the landmark judgement, the judge wondered why a man who could not provide evidence of his alleged victory could approach the court for inordinate expectations.
There was wide jubilation from the court premises as Hon. Sam Onuigbo originating summons was described as a fallen packs of card and DEAD ON ARRIVAL.
A party Chieftain, who spoke with www.newsmirrorng.com at the Court premises on the condition of anonymity, wondered why politicians like Hon. Onuigbo could not toe the line of truth and heed to the advise of the party but only interested in pursuing their personal ambitions without recourse to due process and respect for the party constitution.
