Supreme Court Declares Ifeanyi Odii PDP Governorship Candidate In Ebonyi


The Supreme Court has announced Ifeanyi Odii as the Governorship Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Ebonyi State.

Mr. Odii will now fly the party’s flag in the 2023 gubernatorial election.

The Apex Court further struck out the judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja, which had declared Senator Obinna Ogba, as the Governorship Candidate.

In the lead judgment read by Justice Lawal Garba, the five-man panel headed by Justice Amina Augie noted that senator Ogba did not have the right of Appeal because he was not part of the suit when the matter came up at the trial court in Abakaliki, where Ogba’s candidature was upturned .


Recall that the People's Democratic Party(PDP) has been in a legal battle on who to become the guber Aspirant for the 2023 election.

The two factions in the state produced Senator Obinna Ogba ,  who is the Senator representing Ebonyi Central, and Mr. Ifeanyi Odii.
