In a judgment delivered by Hon. Justice I. Ekwo of the Federal High Court 5, the court asked the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to recognize Barr. George Ogara as the candidate.

He berated the committee sent by the APC NWC to conduct primary election in Enugu.

In a statement Friday night by the AP

C National Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa-Onilu, the party said it was aware of the judgement and had approached the court.

It said: “We would say that we have acknowledged the judgement of the court but we do know the party followed the procedure and the processes that led to the emergence of Senator Ayogu Eze is what this party believes in.

“We believe that the Appeal Court will do the right thing and upturn it. Senator Ayogu Eze remains in the eyes of the party, the governorship candidate for Enugu state.

“The person that has been so declared by a court is unknown to this party because he did not even participate in the primaries that we organised. So there is no way he could have emerged as our candidate.

“Again, as I speak to you we have appealed the judgement and secured a stay of execution. So, even legally as at today, Senator Ayogu Eze is the candidate of APC in Enugu state. We are very confident he is going to deliver.”
