The Court of Appeal has declared Valentine Ozigbo, as the validly nominated governorship candidate of the People’s Democratic party, for the Anambra Governorship election.
The election is slated for November 6th, 2021.
The 3-man panel, led by the President of the Court of Appeal, Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, held that the appeal filed by Valentine Ozigbo, challenging the judgement of the High Court in Awka, is allowed on merit.
The lower court had earlier barred Mr. Ozigbo from parading himself as the candidate which compelled the Independent National Electoral Commission to leave the PDP without a candidate.
The Court of Appeal also set aside the decision of the lower court, declaring it as null and void.
It also awarded the sum of N10m in favor of valentine Ozigbo.
