Nigerians across the globe have applauded the stand of the Judiciary for granting judgement in the favour of Hon. Mrs Ann Agomeze while insisting that the Woman that defeated Ebonyi state Governor, David Umahi at the Court be given the chance to contest the election.

The above Photo is the woman that defeated His Excellency, Engr David Umahi today in Abakaliki Federal High Court amidst crowds of intimidating personalities that accompanied the governor to the court premises.

Her name is Mrs Ann Agom-eze. She came second in the All Progressives Congress APC party senatorial primary election for Ebonyi South Zone while Engr David Umahi’s younger brother, Austin Umahi came first.

It was supprising to the party and the entire followers of Austin Umahi by the way and manner he withdrew from the election and relinquished the ticket to Engr David Umahi.

However, INEC has frowned at it and omitted Engr David Umahi’s name as it never monitored the rerun exercise announcing Umahi candidate.

The governor haven failed from his Presidential ambition, Engr David Umahi went to Federal High Court in Abakaliki, seeking order of court for INEC to publish his name as senatorial candidate for Ebonyi South.

It is at this point that Mrs Ann Agom-eze applied to be joined in the suit and pursued her matter without fear or favour until the competent court of jurisdiction granted her judgement.

Delivering his judgment on Friday 22-07-2022, on the suit, Justice Riman cited section 115 of the electoral act which forbids a person from standing two different primary elections in the same year.

He said in his judgment that such a person if found claiming to participate in two primary elections risks a two year jail term.

He further stated that the authentic senatorial candidate of the APC is Mrs Ann Agom-eze since Austin Umahi withdrew from the race.

Therefore, if Engr David Umahi files an appeal, he stands to gain two years jail bounty as stated by Justice Riman in his judgment.

This a good stand by the court and it is the last hope of the people that such Judgment should be replicated in similar cases acrossboards.
