Appeal Court sacked and bared PDP Senator from rerun




The Court of Appeal sitting in Enugu on Wednesday 23rd December has upheld the decision of the election petition tribunal to sack Senator Uche Ekwunife of the Peoples Democratic Party representing Anambra Central Senatorial district.



The Appeal declared that Ekwunife was not duly nominated through a valid primary election, part of the judgment reads: (Ekwunife) “was not the product of a valid primary and was therefore, not duly and legitimately nominated. The court said for that same reason: “That has disqualified her from contesting the election into the Anambra Central district.”
The court has ordered for rerun but without the candidate of The PDP.

According to the court, for a person to be qualified for an election he/she must be "nominated and sponsored by a political party.” but that was not her case since there was no proof by her Political Party that a primary election was validly conducted
