IMO: Supreme Court affirms Achonu as LP gov candidate

THE Supreme Court has confirmed Athan Achonu as Labour Party’s (LP) candidate for the Imo State election on November 11, 2023.

Basil Maduka, a candidate in the primaries, challenged Achonu’s candidacy at both the Federal High Court and the Court of Appeal.

However, the Supreme Court today dismissed the case, ruling that Achonu won in the legally held primaries conducted by the party’s lawful leadership under Julius Abure and witnessed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Briefing reporters in Abuja alongside Achonu and party attorneys, the LP’s National Legal Officer, Kehinde Edun, applauded the Supreme Court justices for their decision and urged the people of Imo State to support their candidate.
