Over month after the National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Umuahia upheld the election of Chief Mao Ohuabunwa of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the senator representing Abia North, the Court of Appeal in Owerri is yet to hear the appeal filed to challenge the verdict.
The Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) candidate and former Governor Orji Uzor Kalu, had through his legal team appealed against the judgement of the tribunal.
Our reporter however, has reliably gathered that the Court of Appeal, Abuja despite receiving the application of the former governor a few days after the judgement of the tribunal, is yet to constitute a panel to hear the motion for substituted service, which ought to have been heard at the Court of Appeal, Owerri and thus preventing the court from serving a notice on Ohuabunwa.
