Description

The Supreme Court in Nigeria has upheld the election of Mr Willie Obinano as the validly elected governor of Anambra State. In three separate judgements delivered by a panel headed by Justice Mahmud Mohammed, the apex court dismissed claims by the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Chris Ngige and Mr Tony Nwoye of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) that he was not eligible to participate in the election on allegation of multiple registration. The court held that Governor Obiano legally transferred his voters registration from Lagos to Anambra State when he relocated and as such the claims of the appellants cannot be sustained. It dismissed the allegation of massive disenfranchisement of voters, stating that there is no law that says that the actual number of registered voters must vote, as voting is a voluntary exercise.
