The Court of Appeal sitting in Enugu has dismissed the appeal brought by the APC governorship candidate in Enugu State, Mr. Uche Nnaji, against the decision of the Enugu Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, saying the appeal lacked merit.
The court which delivered its ruling on Tuesday via zoom stressed that APC governorship candidate was out to waste the precious time of the court with their frivolous suit.
The Appeal Court justice subsequently, while throwing out the appeal, slammed the APC and Uche Nnaji with a huge cost of N250,000 each for wasting the time of the court on a frolic of adventure that could not hold any water.
While noting that the tribunal was right in dismissing the suit brought before it by Mr. Nnaji challenging the victory of the PDP and Enugu State Governor, Barr. Peter Mbah, in the March 18 governorship election, the court berated Nnaji and his lawyers for being lazy in pursuing their suit.
According to the court, all the grounds of appeal were resolved against the appellants in favour of the PDP and Governor Mbah.
