Court of Appeal upholds Ubah’s election as Senator

The Court of Appeal in Abuja has upheld the election of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah as senator for Anambra South Senatorial District.

A five-member panel of justices led by Justice Stephen Adah declared the FCT High Court ruling, which disqualified Ubah over alleged forgery of school certificate, as a nullity.

The panel held that the originating summons was incompetent having been filed in September 2019 outside the date before the judgement of the National Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal and without a valid stamp and seal of the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) on September 25, 2019.
