Hey there, middle schoolers! Exciting news from Enugu State! The Court of Appeals in Lagos has just confirmed Barr Peter Mbah as the governor of Enugu. Let’s dive into the details!
So, here’s what happened. Barr Chijioke Edeoga from the Labour Party, LP, filed a case against Peter Mbah’s election. He wasn’t happy with the outcome and wanted the court to overturn it. But guess what? The court said nope!
The Appeal Court agreed with the Enugu Tribunal’s decision, which was made on September 9, 2023. The tribunal, led by Hon. Justice K.M. Akano, had already ruled in favor of Peter Mbah. And now, the Appeal Court has backed that up too.
Well, the court looked at three main issues brought up by the appellant (that’s the person who filed the case). They wanted to prove that Peter Mbah faked his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate and shouldn’t have been allowed to run for governor. But guess what? They couldn’t prove it! The court said there was no evidence to support those claims.
Oh, and there was another allegation about over-voting in Nkanu East Local Government Area. But the court dismissed that too. They didn’t find any solid evidence to back up that claim either.
So, what does all this mean? It means that Peter Mbah’s victory in the Enugu governor election has been officially confirmed. The court has said that he won fair and square, and there’s no reason to doubt his qualifications or the voting process.
And that’s the latest update on the Enugu governor election! Stay tuned for more news!
