Appeal Court Sets Aside Judgment Seeking To Delete Section 84(12) Of Amended Electoral Act



The Court of Appeal Abuja Division has set aside the judgment of the Federal High Court in Umuahia which ordered the deletion of Section 84(12) of the Electoral Act 2022.

A judgment delivered on Wednesday says a three-member panel of the court headed by Justice Hamma Akawu Barka held that the Lower court had no jurisdiction to have entertained the case because the plaintiff, Nduka Edede, lacked the locus standi to have filed the suit in the first place.

Recall the Umuahia court had declared invalid and unconstitutional section 84(12) of the amended Electoral Act and ordered the Attorney general of the Federation to delete it.

Also, the court ruled that Edede failed to establish any cause of action that warranted him taking the matter to court.
