A High Court of the Federal Capital Territory sitting at Kubwa, on Friday, declined to set-aside its judgement that nullified the election of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Peoples Party, YPP, for allegedly using a forged National Examination Council, NECO, certificate to contest the senatorial election that held in Anambra South on February 23, 2019.

The court, in a ruling by Justice Bello Kawu, re-affirmed the order it made on April 11 last year, which directed the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to withdraw the Certificate of Return it issued to Ubah and issue a fresh one to Dr. Obinna Uzoh of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, who came 2nd at the election.

Ubah had approached the court to set aside the judgement which he insisted occasioned a grave miscarriage of justice against him.

He decried that he was neither served with the court processes nor hearing notice with respect to the suit, before the court proceeded to deliver the judgement against him.

Following his application for stay of execution, Justice Kawu, on December 4, restrained the Senate President from swearing-in Uzoh, pending the hearing and determination of the motion challenging the verdict.

The court equally ordered all the parties, including the INEC to maintain status quo till it decides the merit in Ubah’s contention.
