Nigeria – PDP’s Senator Uche Ekwunife, representing Anambra Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly has been sacked by the appeal court in Enugu.
This judgement followed an appeal filed by Sir Victor Umeh of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA.
Umeh had earlier lost to Ekwunife of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, at the lower tribunal, which delivered its judgement in Awka, Anambra State.
At its ruling on Monday, the Appeal Court described the tribunal’s ruling as a perverse judgement, which cannot stand.
It, therefore ordered the INEC to conduct fresh election within 90 days.
Meanwhile, the Court upheld the election of Senator Gilbert Nnaji representing Enugu East Senatorial zone.
