“Supreme Court Upholds Alex Otti’s Election, Dismisses PDP and APC Appeals”

The Supreme Court has affirmed the victory of Alex Otti of the Labour Party (LP) in the March 18 governorship election in Abia state, dismissing appeals by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC). The PDP and its candidate, Okey Ahiwe, claimed Otti was ineligible to run as he wasn’t a registered LP member and had allegedly forged his National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) certificate. However, the court of appeal and now the Supreme Court have upheld Otti’s election, ruling that the appeals lacked merit and amounted to an abuse of the court process.
