Supreme Court Upholds Uduaghan, Okorocha's Elections

This Day
2 March 2012

The Supreme Court Friday in Abuja upheld the elections of Dr. Emmanuel Uduaghan and Rochas Okorocha of Delta and Imo states respectively.

In two separate judgments, the apex court adopted a similar reason for upholding the elections.

The court held that the judgments of the Court of Appeal which formed the bases of the appeals to the Supreme Court were nullity because the reasons for the judgments were delivered outside the 60 days allowed by the constitution.
