The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by the opposition All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Uche Nnaji in the last governorship election in Enugu, challenging the victory of Peter Mbah as the governor of the state.
Nnaji had argued that Mbah was not constitutionally qualified to vie for the office of the governor at the time of the election, having allegedly presented a forged certificate to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)
The tribunal dismissed the case and the appeal Court also upheld their decision.
Not satisfied, the APC Candidate who’s currently the minister for science and technology approached the apex court.
But in a ruling on Friday, a five-member panel of the Supreme Court held that the legal team of the APC and Nnaji filed invalid brief of argument and failed to convince the court with cogent reason why the appellants’ incompetent brief should be allowed.
