APC guber candidate withdraws appeal against Enugu governor

13 October 2015, 16:24

Enugu - The Enugu State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the April 11 election, Okey Ezea on Monday withdrew his appeal against the judgment of the election petition tribunal which previously upheld the election of Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), reports National Mirror.

The state election petition tribunal had dismissed Ezea’s petition, challenging the election of Ugwuanyi for lack of merit, but Ezea, headed for the appeal court against the verdict of the tribunal.

At the hearing of the appeal on Monday Ezea, through his counsel, Peter Ugwu, told the court that he has already filed withdrawal notice before the court and requested the court to discontinue the appeal.
