In a surprising turn of events, the appeal court has sacked Ndudi Elumelu and affirmed the Labour Party (LP) candidate, Ngozi Okolie, as the winner of the representative seat in Delta. This decision has sent shockwaves through the political landscape, as Elumelu was widely expected to retain his position.

The court’s ruling came after a lengthy legal battle between Elumelu and Okolie, both of whom claimed victory in the hotly contested election. The appeal court thoroughly examined the evidence presented by both parties and ultimately concluded that Okolie had the majority of valid votes.
