The division in the Ebonyi State chapter of the Labour Party heightened in Wednesday following the decision of a Federal High Court in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, to uphold the results of the primary election held on June 9 which produced Splendour Eze as the party’s gubernatorial candidate in the state.
In his ruling on Wednesday, Justice Fatun Liman, also nullified the primary that produced Edward Nkwegu as a second governorship candidate for the party, saying it was unconstitutional.
He ruled that the party’s primary election that held earlier in June was still authentic as the candidate, Eze never withdrew from the race.
Counsel to Eze, Barr Michael Odoh, who commended the judgement, stated that his client remains the party’s authentic candidate in Ebonyi as he has not withdrawn.
