The Appellate court sitting in Abuja on Friday reinstated Chijioke Edeoga as the authentic governorship candidate of the Labour Party in Enugu State.
Following a suit by Everest Nnaji, Justice Evelyn Maha of the Federal High Court, Abuja had set aside Edeoga’s nomination.
Nnaji had claimed that he was excluded from the primary election.
However, in its judgment, the Appeal Court affirmed Edeoga as the true candidate of the party, setting aside the High Court ruling.
