BREAKING: Court nullifies Andy Uba’s participation in Anambra governorship election


A Federal High Court in Abuja on Monday, nullified Senator Andy Uba’s participation in the November 6 Anambra State governorship election.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a judgment on Monday, held that Uba was never a candidate in the election having emerged from an illegally conducted primary election by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The judge held that the plaintiff, George Moghalu, succeeded in proving that the APC did not conduct a valid primary election from which Andy Uba claimed to have emerged as the party’s candidate.
