In his July 4 notice of appeal, Dr. Ikpeazu, through his counsel, Chief Wole Olanipekun (SAN), raised 50 grounds of appeal and expressed dissatisfaction with the decision of the lower court.

The respondents are: Dr. Sampson Uchechukwu Ogah (1st); Peoples Democratic Party (2nd); the Independent National Electoral Commission (3rd); and Mr. Friday Nwanozie Nwosu (4th).
