Court of Appeal sacks Senator Uche Ekwunife, orders rerun

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero
The Court of Appeal sitting in Enugu, on Monday, sacked Senator Uche Ekwunife representing Anambra Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly.
The court’s judgement was consequent upon 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.
Nnaji had gone to the court to challenge the decision of the tribunal, which was in favour of former Governor Chimaroke Nnamani.
