Anambra 2021: Appeal Court declares Valentine Ozigbo PDP candidate


The court of appeal in Abuja has declared Valentine Ozigbo as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Anambra State.

Justice Monica Dongban-Mensem, who led the three-member panel, unanimously upheld the two appeals filed by Ozigbo and the PDP (CA/AW/223/2021 and CA/AW/234/2021).

The appellate court, in two judgements delivered on Friday, set aside the July 19, 2021 judgment by Justice Justice A.O. Nwabunike of the Anambra State High Court sitting at Awka, declaring Senator Ugochukwu Uba as the authentic candidate of the PDP in the governorship election coming up in Anambra in November.
