Anambra: Court orders INEC to list Uba as Anambra PDP candidate


An Anambra State High Court sitting in Awka has ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to list Ugochukwu Uba as the Anambra governorship candidate of People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in the forthcoming November 6 election.

The court presided over by Justice Obiora Nwabunike also awarded N10 million damages against the defendants namely, the PDP and Valentine Ozigbo, the other candidate of the party produced at the primary supervised by the leadership of PDP.

According to the judge, the primary that produced Uba was the authentic one because there was a court ruling by Justice Adeniyi of the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, which had not been vacated.

He said the plaintiff, Uba, relied on the judgment of the FCT High Court to conduct the PDP primary that took place at Paul University, Awka on the 26th of June, explaining that since the PDP did not like the judgment of the FCT High Court, it should have endeavoured to vacate it before deciding to use super delegates during the primary that produced Ozigbo.
