A suit filed against the newly elected governor of Anambra State and his deputy, Charles Soludo and Onyeka Ibezim of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has been dismissed by the Federal High Court in Abuja.
According to the plaintiffs Adindu Valentine and Egwudike Chukwuebuka, the defendants provided false information in the affidavit (Form EC9) which was submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and should be declared as unqualified to stand for election.

In the suit marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/711/2021 the plaintiffs claimed that Soludo indicated, in his Form EC9, Aguata 2, Anambra Constituency as the position he was contesting when, in fact, he was contesting the Anambra governorship seat.
In his judgment on Wednesday, Justice Taiwo Taiwo held that the suit was frivolous as the plaintiffs failed to show how they were misled by the information supplied by Soludo and Ibezim.
