The Court of Appeal panel in Lagos has upheld the election victory of Nwogu Iheanacho, the Young Progressive Party (YPP) candidate representing Osisioma Ngwa North constituency in the Abia State House of Assembly.

The appeal brought by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidate, Kennedy Njoku, was dismissed by the court for lacking merit. The State House of Assembly election petition tribunal in Umuahia had previously ruled in favor of Iheanacho.

In a separate case, the Appeal Court in Lagos also upheld the victory of Rowland Chinwendu, who was elected as the member representing Isiala Ngwa South constituency in the Abia State House of Assembly. The appeal filed by Dannie Ubani, the Labour Party candidate, was dismissed by the court for lacking merit. The court held that Ubani failed to provide evidence to support his claims that the election of Chinwendu did not comply with the provisions of the Electoral Act.
