The court in its decision said that the case earlier instituted at the Abuja Division of the Federal High Court, which recognised Mr. Ned Nwoko as the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), was wrongly filed.

With the Appeal Court decision, Nwaoboshi will be the senator-elect for the district.

Nwoko and Nwaoboshi are both of the PDP and both contested for the ticket for the party, during the primaries.
