Anambra election: Court voids Andy Uba’s nomination
A FEDERAL High Court sitting in Abuja has nullified Senator Andy Uba’s nomination by All Progressives Congress (APC) and his participation in the recently concluded Anambra State governorship election.
Delivering his judgement, today, Justice Inyang Ekwo said that Uba was never a candidate in the election having emerged from an illegally conducted primary election.
Justice Ekwo also said that the plaintiff, George Moghalu, succeeded in proving that APC did not conduct a valid primary election from which Uba claimed to have emerged as the party’s candidate.
The judge ordered INEC to delete Uba from its record as a candidate in the election.
He then ordered the APC to refund to the plaintiff the N22,500.000 he paid for expression of interest and nomination forms since the party failed to conduct a valid primary.
