Abia 2023: Court Sacks Emenike, Declares Uche Ogah APC Guber Candidate


November 11, (THEWILL) – A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has declared former Minister of State for Mines and Steel Development, Dr Uchechukwu Sampson Ogah, as the duly elected governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Abia State.

The crisis had erupted after different factions of the party produced Chief Emenike and Ogah, who emerged through indirect and direct parallel primaries respectively.

Emenike, a Development Economist, has about 23 lawsuits against his governorship bid, but about 19 have so far been resolved in his favour.


Earlier, an Appeal Court verdict affirmed the decision of the state high court which confirmed him as the APC governorship candidate for the 2023 elections.

However, a ruling on the 20th lawsuit filed against his candidacy by Ogah, Justice Binta Nyako, on Friday, sacked Emenike, who was earlier recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

The court held that Ogah is the duly elected APC candidate for the March 11, 2023 governorship election.
