Appeal Court Affirms David Mark’s Election, Dismisses Onjeh’s Appeal

The Appeal Court agrees with the lower tribunal in dismissing the petition filed by Mr Daniel Onjeh of the All Progressive Congress (APC) against the declaration of David Mark as the winner of the February 20th rerun election on the grounds that the petition was filed out of time.

According to the court, section 285 sub-section 5, provides for 21 days within which a petitioner can approach the court with the computation of time beginning from the day the result of the election is declared.

While counsel to David Mark expresses joy on his client victory, the petitioner is taking the judgment in good fate.
