Reading Time: < 1 minute

SWITZERLAND, JANUARY 17 – A Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court sitting in the Bwari area of Abuja has sacked Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Progressives Party (YPP).

The court, also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Ubah and issue a fresh one to Dr Obinna Uzoh of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who came 2nd at the election.

Senator Ubah was the lawmaker representing Anambra South district in the upper chamber of the National Assembly.

Today’s ECho gathered that the court on April 11, 2019, had nullified Ifeanyi Ubah’s victory for allegedly using a forged National Examination Council certificate to contest the senatorial election that held in Anambra South on February 23, 2019.

The Abuja high court on Fiday upheld the earlier judgement, effectively sacking the senator.
