BREAKING: Valentine Ozigbo Declared Anambra PDP Gov Candidate — Appeal Court
Valentine Ozigbo has been confirmed as the duly elected aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP for the Anambra Governorship election scheduled for 6 November 2021 by the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja.
Headed by Honorable Justice Monica Dongban- Mensem, the President of the Court of Appeal, a three-man panel of justices, gave the ruling on Friday in pursuance of an appeal filed by Ozigbo.
The appellate court ruled that the appeal disputing the decision of the Awka High Court, which banned him from showing himself off as the PDP aspirant in the coming governorship polls, had merit and was, accordingly, permitted.
The court also quashed the judgment of the lower court, announcing it null and void.
It also granted the sum of N10 m in favour of Ozigbo.
The court, subsequently, mandated INEC to publicize the names of Ozigbo and his pair as the validly elected aspirants of the PDP in the 2023 November polls.
