The Federal High Court at Umuahia, Abia State, has scheduled tomorrow, Tuesday October 4, 2022, to declare the authentic All Progressives Congress (APC) senatorial candidate for Abia Central for the 2023 general elections.

Two aspirants, the serving member of the House of Representatives for Ikwuano/Umuahia Constituency, Sam Onuigbo, and Emeka Atuma, who represented the constituency years ago before Onuigbo, are both claiming to be the party’s duly nominated candidate.

While Onuigbo emerged the candidate from the party primary held on May 28 and 29, 2022, Atuma, who had earlier contested for the party’s gubernatorial ticket and lost to Dr. Ikechi Emenike and, thus, did not contest in the senatorial primary, was later named as the candidate.


Not accepting the seeming mischief, Onuigbo, in suit No FHC/UM/CS/113/2022, took the matter to the Federal High Court, urging it to declare him the duly nominated party candidate for Abia Central.
