Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, yesterday, nullified the Abia All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship primary election, which was held on May 29, 2022.

Orders fresh election within 14 days

Justice Binta Nyako of the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, yesterday, nullified the Abia All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) governorship primary election, which was held on May 29, 2022.

The trial judge has, consequently, ordered a fresh primary election to be conducted within 14 days. Justice Nyako made the order in a judgement on a suit by Chief Chikwe Udensi, challenging the outcome of APGA’s governorship primary, purportedly, won by Prof. Greg Ibe.

The judge observed that from the evidence and testimonies of witnesses, the May 29 APGA governorship primary, in Abia State, was flawed and marred by irregularities. Udensi had urged the court to declare him winner of the APGA governorship primary or, in the alternative, order a fresh primary.
