Abia State National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal has dismissed the petition filed against the declaration of Ibe Okwara Osonwa of Labour Party as winner of the February 25 Arochukwu/Ohafia Federal Constituency election. Rt. Hon. Ifeanyi Uchendu who was the immediate past Deputy Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Federal House of Representative candidate has approached the court to nullify the declaration of Osonwa as winner of the election for lack of merit and being incompetent.
Uchendu, accused INEC of not complying with the provisions of the Electoral Act, 2022, as amended in the conduct of the election.
However, the court on the 9th of September, 2023 upholds Chief Ibe Okwara Osonwa as the right winner of the election.
