IMO: After much anticipation Okorocha's son-in-law leaves APC for AA

The Court of Appeal on Friday ordered the Imo State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal to reinstate the Action Alliance (AA) as the 2nd Petitioner in the petition brought by the AA governorship candidate, Uche Nwosu.

The Presiding Judge, Justice Owoade JCA dismissed the objections of the respondents and allowed the Appeal filed by Nwosu against the ruling of the Tribunal that allowed AA to pull out of the petition challenging Emeka Ihedioha’s election.

It will be recalled that the Tribunal had allowed the prayer of the AA to pull out of the petition filled by its governorship candidate.
