The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja, presided over by Justice Hamma Akawu Barka, on Wednesday set aside the judgment of Justice Evelyn Anyadike of a Federal High Court in Umuahia which voided the provision of Section 84(12) of the Electoral Act 2022.

The Court of Appeal in the suit designated FHC/UM/CS/26/2022 held that the Federal High Court Umuahia had no jurisdiction to have entertained the case because the plaintiff, Nduka Edede, lacked the locus standi to have filed the suit in the first place.

The intermediate court further declared that Edede did not establish any cause of action to have warranted his approaching the court on the issue because he did not establish that he was directly affected by the provision.
