A Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting in the Bwari area of Abuja has reaffirmed the sack of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Progressives Party (YPP).
The judge, Justice Bello Kawu, in a ruling, declined Ubah’s request to set aside the earlier order issued in a judgment delivered by the court on April 11, 2019. Senator Ubah was the lawmaker representing Anambra South district in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
The judge ordered that Mr Obinna Uzoh of PDP, who had challenged Ubah’s victory in the February 23 poll, be recognized as the winner of the election. Among other claims, the PDP candidate alleged that his YPP counterpart presented a forged National Examination Council (NECO) secondary school certificate to INEC, which enabled him to contest the senatorial election.
