The Appeal Court sitting in Abuja has rejected the prayers brought by the Labour Party and its candidate, Darlington Nwokocha, asking it to reverse the judgement it delivered on the Abia Central senatorial election appeals, which sacked Nwokocha as the elected senator for Abia Central.

The court also ordered Nwokocha and his counsel to pay five million naira to Senator Austin Akobundu and the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
