The Appeal Court in Enugu dismissed the suit filed by Senator Sonni Ogbuoji, the All Progressives Congress (APC) candidate for Governor of Ebonyi State in the 2019 Governorship election, and his Deputy, Chief Justin Ogbodo Mbam, which asked the Court to declare the seats of Governor David Nweze Umahi and his Deputy, Dr Kelechi Igwe, vacant due to their defection from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the APC.

Remember that on February 28, 2022, the Ebonyi State High Court in Abakaliki dismissed the identical action and granted the plaintiff N500, 000 in damages.

The complaint was dismissed by the judge, Justice A.O Belgore, after a 37-minute hearing because it was in violation of the country’s constitution and existing laws.
