Supreme Court Dashes Senator Obinna Ogba’s Hope, Declares Ifeanyi Odii as Ebonyi PDP Governorship Candidate

The Supreme Court has declared Ifeanyi Odii as the Governorship Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Ebonyi State for the March 2023 election.

Mr Odii will now fly the party’s flag in the 2023 gubernatorial election.

The Apex Court struck out the judgement of the Court of Appeal in Abuja, which had declared Senator Obinna Ogba, as the Governorship Candidate.

In the lead judgement read by Justice Lawal Garba, the five- man panel headed by Justice Amina Augie noted that senator Ogba did not have the right of Appeal because he was not part of the suit when the matter came up at the trial court in Abakaliki, where Ogba’s candidature was upturned.
