Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) has been sacked by a Federal Capital Territory (FCT) High Court sitting in the Bwari area of Abuja.

The court reaffirmed the sack of the Senator representing Anambra South District which a court had delivered in December. 

Justice Bello Kawu on Friday refused to reverse the initial judgement which had not been in the senator’s Favour.

He, however, ordered that Mr Obinna Uzoh of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who had challenged Ubah’s victory in the February 23 poll, be recognised as the winner of the election.

The judge also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a certificate of return to Uzoh, the applicant, as the senator-elect in the district.

The PDP candidate claimed Ubah had presented a forged National Examination Council (NECO) secondary school certificate to INEC, in the requirements to contest the election.

He also insisted that Ubah’s party should be disqualified for not conducting a primary for its candidates in the poll.

In his judgement, Justice Kawu sacked Ubah and declared that the second defendant in the suit – the YPP – did not have the locus standi, and should not have participated in the election.
