Court nullifies APC candidate, Andy Uba

Participation of All Progressives Congress, Andy Uba in Anambra governorship election last month has been nullified by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja. 


Uba’s participation in the election was nullified by Justice Inyang Ekwo who ruled that he emerged from an illegally conducted primary election by the All Progressives Congress (APC).


Justice Ekwo in the judgement given on Monday December 20, said the plaintiff, George Moghalu, succeeded in proving that the APC did not conduct a valid primary election from which Uba claimed to have emerged as the party’s candidate.


The judge who ordered INEC to delete Uba from its record as a candidate in the election, also 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.a
