By the unanimous verdict, So, Chris Uba, John Emeka and Annie Okonkwo are the duly nominated senatorial candidates for Anambra South, Central and North in the March 28,2015 general election.

Wild jubilation had erupted within the court, outside, and in Awka.
The court also confirmed that copies of the judgement was ready for collection.
