In Surprise move, the Federal High Court in Abuja has nullified Senator Andy Uba’s participation in the November 6 Anambra state governorship election.

The Nation Newspaper reports that Justice Inyang Ekwo, in a judgment on Monday, December 20, held that Uba was never a candidate in the election.

The court claimed that Uba emerged from an illegally conducted primary election by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

According to the judge, the plaintiff, George Moghalu, was able to prove that the APC did not conduct a valid primary election from which Uba claimed to have emerged as the party’s candidate.

As a result of this, the judge ordered INEC to delete Uba from its record as a candidate in the election. Also, the judge ordered the APC to refund to the plaintiff the N22,500.000 he paid for expression of interest and nomination forms since the party failed to conduct a valid primary.
