“Our party restates here that while the matter that was declined was by the Abuja Court, the matter involving the PDP is at the Supreme Court, awaiting hearing. It is the petition by Chief Philip Umeadi SAN, joined by the PDP, asking the Supreme Court to enforce its judgement on the candidate of APC in the 2019 governorship election, in which Chief Uche Nwosu was recognized and disqualified by the Supreme Court as the authentic candidate of APC in the election,” he said.
