The Supreme Court yesterday nullified the election of the two remaining senators from Anambra State. All three senators from the state emerged on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP). Those removed yesterday were Senators Stella Oduah and Andy Uba.
To replace them, according to the apex court, are Chris Ubah (Anambra South) and Annie Okonkwo (Anambra Central).
In the judgment by a five-man panel of justices delivered by Justice Inyang Okoro, the court set aside the judgment of the Court of Appeal in Abuja delivered on February 16, 2015 while it upheld the decision of the Abuja Federal High Court that was delivered on December 15, 2014.
It would be recalled that the Anambra State executive committee of the PDP led by Ejike Oguebego had sued the PDP, INEC and the Chukwudi Okasia-led faction of the PDP over the validity of the state’s party leadership.
