Appeal court Nullifies Senator Uche Ekwunife's Election, orders rerun


Reports just coming in say a Court of Appeal sitting in Enugu has nullified the election of Uche Ekwunife of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).

This follows an appeal filed by Victor Umeh of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA).

A lead judgement read by Justice Datijo Yahaya stated that the election of Mrs Ekwunife on April 11, 2015, did not meet the prescription of the electoral act. 

The judge then ordered that fresh election be held in the Anambra Central Senatorial District within 90 days.
