It upheld the Court of Appeal decision delivered on August 29 which voided and set aside the judgment of the Federal High Court of July 7, 2022, that nullified his nomination on grounds of certificate forgery and perjury.

Justice Tijani Abubakar in a lead judgment held that the grievous allegations of supply of false information and certificate forgery brought against the speaker cannot be proved beyond a reasonable doubt with the use of originating summons.

The court agreed that the appellant ought to have approached the Federal High Court via Writ of Summons to enable the resolution of disputes and not by originating summons where only affidavit evidence is required

Justice Abubakar resolved all disputed issues in favour of Oborevwori Sheriff Francis Orohwedor as canvassed by his lawyer Mr. Damian Dodo (SAN).

The Supreme Court in totality held that the case of the appellant, David Edevbie, has no merit in any form and was subsequently dismissed.

Meanwhile, Kanyi Daily reported that the Supreme Court declared Ifeanyi Odii as Ebonyi PDP governorship candidate.
