By Ise-Oluwa Ige

ABUJA—The Abuja Court of Appeal yesterday adjourned, sine die,  pronouncement on the validity of the April 28, 2007 gubernatorial election in Imo State which produced Governor Ikedi Ohiakim as governor.

The appellate court reserved judgment yesterday in the matter after listening to heated arguments from all parties in the case.

The gubernatorial candidate of APGA in the April 14, 2007 governorship election in Imo State, Chief Martin Agbaso, filed the original suit before the Abuja Federal high court which came on appeal to the Abuja Court of Appeal.

In the suit, he is urging the court to hold that the gubernatorial election conducted by INEC on April 14, 2007 in Imo state is valid.

At appeal, Agbaso brought an application to amend his originating processes, adduce further evidence and in the event his applications are granted, wanted the appellate court to declare him winner of the election.

Another candidate in the April 14, 2007 gubernatorial election who contested on the platform of PDP, Ifeanyi Ararume, also joined Agbaso in his quest to invalidate Ohiakim’s election.
