The election petition appeal court sitting in Lagos, on Friday, October 27, upheld the ruling of the election Tribunal in Awka which nullified the return of Hon. Uche Elodimuo of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

The court upheld the decision of the Anambra State election tribunal in favour of Hon. Peter Uzokwe of the Young Progressives Party (YPP).
