Supreme Court affirms Ibezim as APC candidate, dismisses Ararume’s appeal | Naija.NewsBurrow


Supreme court today, fifth February 2021, dismissed the appeal set up by Sen. Ifeanyi Ararume challenging the judgement of the Appeal Court being in Owerri which reinstated Sir Frank Ibezim as the All Progressives Congress, APC, prospect for Imo North Senatorial Bye-Election.

It would be remembered that the Court of Appeal had on December 4th, 2020, dismissed the judgement of the Federal High Court, Owerri, which had made substantial orders mandating INEC to change Ibezim with Ararume as the APC prospect.

In a consentaneous ruling, the Supreme court panel concurred with the Court of Appeal judgement that the lower court ought not to have actually made the consequential orders against Sir Ibezim.

The lead and concurrent judgements read by Justice Mohammed Lawal Garba and Justice Emmanuel Akomaye Agim, concluded that Ibezim being not a party or privy to the matter at High Court, his fundamental rights to reasonable hearing were abridged.

The peak court mentioned that the lower court also erred in judgement not to have dismissed the case submitted by one Lady Uchenna Ubah as doing not have in benefit.

The Supreme court five-man panel commanded by Justice Amina Adamu Augie, also had Justices Uwani Musa Abba Aji and Samuel Chukwudumebi.

By this judgement, the court has successfully reaffirmed Sir Frank Ibezim, as the rightful candidate of the APC in the December 5th, 2020 senatorial bye-election.
