The Court of Appeal upholds Orji Uzor Kalu as the winner in the Abia North election.

On Monday, November 6, a Court of Appeal in Abuja confirmed Orji Uzor Kalu, the former Governor of Abia state, as the victorious candidate for the Abia North Senatorial District.

Justice Abiri, who presided over the case involving appeals by the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Nnamdi Iro Orji, and the People Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Senator Mao Ohabunwa, declared that their appeals were without merit.

The court determined that Senator Kalu had adhered to the Electoral Act’s provisions and dismissed the petitioners’ claims that the election was not conducted in more than 120 polling units, particularly in Ohafia and Arochukwu local government areas of the district.
