Court orders Andy Uba’s candidacy null and void

Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court in Abuja says Senator Andy Uba’s participation in the governorship election in Anambra State on November 6 is ultra vires and null and void.

Justice Ekwo ruled on Monday that Senator Uba was never a candidate in the election because the APC primaries were conducted illegally.

Justice Ekwo noted that the plaintiff, George Moghalu, had succeeded in proving that the APC failed to hold a valid primary election from which Uba claimed to be chosen as the party’s candidate.

In addition, the judge ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to delete Uba from its record as a candidate in the election and ordered the APC to refund to Moghalu, the sum of N22.5 million he paid for expressions of interest and nomination forms since the party failed to conduct a valid primary.
