A Nigerian lawyer and human rights activist, Festus Ogun has reacted to the order by a Federal High Court nullifying the candidature of the Abia State Governor-elect, Dr Alex Otti and all the candidates of the Labour Party in Abia and Kano states.
Recall that the Federal High Court sitting in Kano gave the order on Friday.
The court ruled that their emergence wasn’t in compliance with the provisions of the 2022 Electoral Act.

A copy of the judgement delivered by the court was obtained Friday morning by DAILY POST.
Reacting, Ogun, in a tweet via his Twitter handle, branded the court’s judgement as too late, adding that Otti and other LP candidates have been duly elected.
“Too late. They have been duly elected,” Ogun tweeted.
“This judgement cannot affect their emergence in any way and cannot be a ground to challenge their emergence at the Tribunal.”
