The Supreme Court also dismissed the two appeals filed by Senator Ifeanyi Ararume asking it to declare him the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last by-election for Imo North Senatorial District of Imo State.

A five-man panel of the court, headed by Justice Amina Augie, in two judgments, affirmed the judgments of the Court of Appeal, Owerri division, which voided the proceedings and decisions in the suit filed by Lady Uchenna Onyeiwu Ubah before the Federal High Court in Owerri.
Justice Tijani Abubakar, who prepared the lead judgments, said, after reviewing all the arguments by parties and the records, the court found that the appeals were without merit.
He further said the proceedings of the trial court constitute a nullity and must be struck out.
