An appellate court sitting in Lagos, on Friday, upheld the election of Barr Peter Mbah as the governor of Enugu State.
The judgement was delivered by a three-man panel of the Appeal Court in a case filed by Barr Chijioke Edeoga of the Labour Party, LP.
The court affirmed the judgment of Enugu Tribunal delivered on September 9, 2023, by the Hon. Justice K.M. Akano-led tribunal.
All the three issues which were subject of the appeal were resolved in favour of Mbah of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
The three-member panel led by Justice Tijani Yusuf Hassan held that the appellant failed to prove that Mbah forged his National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, certificate and was not qualified to contest the election.
The allegations of over-voting in Nkanu East Local Government Area was also dismissed by the court.
