In a ruling by the Federal High Court, on Friday, in Abuja, Uche Ogah was affirmed to be the duly nominated candidate for the All Progressives Congress, APC, for the 2019 governorship election in Abia State. 

This was as the result of the ruling by Justice Anule Chikere, which stated that the primary conducted by the party’s national executive is valid and recognized by Section 87 of the Electoral Act and as such the one that produced Mr Ogah was the only recognized one.

In addition, the Justice added that the primaries conducted by the State executive of the APC was illegal, null and void.

Conclusively, Justice Chikere barred INEC from substituting the name of Mr. Uche Ogah with any other candidate.
