The court ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to withdraw the certificate of Return issued to the All Progressives Congress’ candidates as the winners of the November 16th 2019 governorship election in the state and issue fresh certificates to the candidates of the PDP, Douye Diri who reportedly scored the next highest number of votes during the election.

This judgement comes barely a month after the Supreme court annulled the election of PDP's Emeka Ihedioha in Imo state and instated Hope Uzodinma of the APC.
