The Supreme Court on Monday, afairmed the election of Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah of YPP as the duly elected senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District in the Senate.
The Supreme court dismissed the appeal by Dr Obinna Uzo and that of Chris Ubah against Senator Dr Ikemba Ifeanyi Ubah of YPP. Dr Obinna Uzo and chief Chris Uba have approached the Supreme court after they lost at the Appeal court Abuja.
The High Court of the Federal Capital Territory had on April 11, 2019, after sacking Ubah, ordered INEC to withdraw the certificate of return it issued to Ubah and issue a fresh one to Dr. Obinna Uzoh of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who came 2nd at the election.
Sen Ubah approached the Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, on Thursday Mar 19, 2020 seeking the court to set aside the judgment of the lower court which nullified his election as the Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District.
Sen Ubah’s appeal was granted on the grounds that the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory lacked the territorial jurisdiction to entertain the matter in the first place.
More details of the proceedings will be updated.
