THE Supreme Court, on Monday, upheld the appeals filed by the standard-bearers of the Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) in both Benue and Akwa Ibom states, Steve Ugbah and John Akpanudodehe, challenging the decision of the Court of Appeal, which had dismissed their petitions on the grounds that it was filed ex parte without leave of court.

Ugba is challenging the declaration of Gabriel Suswam as the governor of Benue State on the grounds that the April election was fraught with irregularities and fraud.

While Akpanudodehe is also challenging the victory of Governor Gods
