Governor David Umahi

Today being Friday 11th December, 2015, in the coal city of Enugu, the Court of Appeal presiding over the case between Engr. David Umahi of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Chief Edward Nkwegu of Labour Party, LP upheld the election of David Umahi as the winner of the 2015 gubernatorial election in Ebonyi State.

According to the verdict of the Judge made in favour of Engr David Umahi, the court described the suit as “functionally useless and lacking in merit.”


Chief Edward Nkwegu in his appeal had prayed the court to nullify the election of Engr David Umahi of PDP as the winner of Ebonyi State governorship election and order that a fresh election be conducted with alleged proofs that the sanctity of the election was marred by numerous irregularities.

It is noteworthy that the Ebonyi State election petition tribunal that sat in Abakaliki had in October upheld the election of Engr David Umahi as the winner of 2015 election while his second runner, Chief Edward Nkwegu who happens to have had the support of the former governor, Chief Martins Elechi vowed to appeal the judgment.

U.N. Udechukwu, counsel to Chief Edward Nkwegu prayed the Court of Appeal in Enugu to set aside the judgment of the tribunal which he described as a grave error of law and order for a fresh election.


In the appeal filed by his counsel, U.N Udechukwu, Mr. Nkwegu prayed the Appeal Court to set aside the judgment of the tribunal, describing the verdict as a grave error of law. However, in a counter opinion, the counsel to Engr David Umahi urged to Appeal Court to dismiss the appeal, noting that his client, was validly elected and that his election complied with the Electoral Act.
Reacting to the verdict of the Appeal Court, some Ebonyians noted that eight (8) lives of some people who were travelling to Enugu to witness the court sitting were lost. So far, the full details of these people have not known but we shall intimate you on that. Do stay connected with us here.

Ebonyi Interactive Forum:
“Every right thinking Ebonyian should know that Ebonyi descending into hell. What happened today is a pointer that the state is seriously under demonic attack brought into the state in the name of politics. The state is now enveloped in the aftermath of several oath takings. We need the presence of the likes of Fr. Mbaka, oku nere ere etc to deliver this state from the demonic reign. Lord in your mercy, save us from the hand of those who use your name to rake havoc.”

When I was telling people that the kingdom of devil is about being establish in Ebonyi state via Dave they weren’t listening. In fact everybody should be praying hard for God to deliver Ebonyians especially those in the so called divine mandate team because from what I saw this is just the beginning.


The blood sucking demon in Ebonyi strikes again, takes lives of 8 persons heading to Enugu for today's appeal court judgment.
