The Governorship Election Petition Appeal sitting in
Enugu has affirmed the victory of Gov. David Nweze
Umahi as the duly elected governor of Ebonyi State
as a petition by Mr. Ajah Arua of PDM challenging
his victory was struck out in the early hours of
The Tribunal sitting in Abakaliki had on September
3rd struck out the same petition for lack of merit
but the said Mr. Arua proceeded to Court of Appeal
which was also brought to nothingness today.
We do know that Mr. Arua was heading for total
failure on his mission following the glaring evidence
which supports the re-election of Governor David
Nweze Umahi, FNSE, FNATE.
A situation where he won his major opponent with over 90% of votes casted. In all, we say Congratulations to our wonder working Governor for this second victory for Ebonyians.
