2023: Court Upholds Gov Umahi’s Rival Expulsion From APC

A Federal High Court in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, has upheld Mrs. Ann Agom-Eze’s expulsion from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Agom-Eze and Governor David Umahi were involved in a court dispute over the party’s 2023 senatorial nomination for Ebonyi South.

The female politician was kicked out of the party by the Umudomi Ward executive of the party she belonged to for allegedly breaking several party rules.

Nevertheless, the senatorial candidate persisted in her legal dispute with Governor Umahi over the senatorial ticket notwithstanding her purported removal from the party.

The Chairman of the party in the state, Stanley Okoro-emegha and the Umudomi Chairman of the party, Nwiteze John, jointly approached the High Court on behalf of the party to stop her from parading herself as a member of the party and as a senatorial candidate of the party.
