– UGWUMBA UCHE NWOSU CELEBRATES
A five member panel of the Court of Appeal sitting in Owerri, the Imo State capital has set aside a ruling of the Imo State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, striking off the name of the Action Alliance (AA) from the petition filed by Ugwumba Uche Nwosu from the filings of the court.
The panel unanimously agreed that the Tribunal was misled into granting the prayers the Action Alliance, requesting to be struck off from the petition, as the processes neither followed laid down procedures, nor served the interest of justice.
The Panel therefore ordered the Tribunal to immediately reinstate the Action Alliance as a petitioner in the matter.
Reacting to the development, the 2019 Imo Governorship Candidate of Action Alliance, Ugwumba Uche Nwosu thanked the Nigerian judiciary for always standing up for justice and fairness. He shared on his social media handle thus:
"What a great news to kick off the day with.
My dear people, our faith in the judiciary is paying off.
Few minutes ago, I got a call from the leader of my legal team, Chief Niyi Akintola, breaking the good news that a five man panel of the Court of Appeal has upheld our appeal, contesting the decision of the Tribunal to strike off the name of my Party, the Action Alliance, from our ongoing petition at the Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal.
I thank the Nigerian judiciary for always standing up for justice and fairness and I celebrate every member of my legal team for the diligence in the pursuit of justice for majority of Imo people, who freely gave me their mandate."
