The Court of Appeal Abuja Division has declared Valentine Ozigbo as the validly elected Anambra governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the November 6 election.
Delivering judgment, the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban- Mensem who led a three-man panel of justices held that the appeal filed by Valentine Ozigbo, challenging the judgement of the Akwa High Court had merit.
NewsWireNGR recalls that the Akwa High Court had banned Ozigbo from parading himself as the PDP candidate in the state’s gubernatorial election.
However, the appellate court set aside the decision of the High Court and declared it null and void.
It also awarded the sum of N10 million exemplary cost in favour of Ozigbo.
Ozigbo is the immediate past president of Transcorp Nigeria PLC.
