A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has sacked Hon. Chijioke Edeoga as the Enugu State Labour Party governorship candidate.
The court has also directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh primary election within 14 days.
Hon. Chijioke Edeoga and Mr Evarest Nnaji, have been in a legal battle over who becomes the rightful governorship candidate of the Labour Party since the duo left the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) after the May 25, 2022 primary election.
The judgement was earlier slated to be read on November 2, 2022, but adjourned to November 9, 2022.
