The candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Cornelius Nnaji was declared the winner instead.

Nnaji had approached the tribunal, challenging the declaration of Nnamchi as the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The court said that the respondent was not duly sponsored and therefore not qualified to contest on the LP platform.
