The Court unanimously held that the suit lacked merit and was thrown out by the three-member panel of the appellate court led by Theresa Orji-Abadua.

Ibrahim Adeyangtso, a member of the panel, Ibrahim Adeyangtso, who read the judgment, said after considering all the issues raised by the parties to the case, the appeal was found to be lacking in substance.

The three-member panel however, upheld the decision of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which earlier dismissed the suit of being statute-barred.

It will be recalled that Justice Abang had on December 16 2020 upheld the emergence of Akeredolu as the flag bearer of APC in the governorship election held on the 10th October, 2020.
