Imo APC Reps member-elect sacked by court


Justice P.A. Rigime of the Federal High Court in Owerri Owerri has sacked a member-elect for Nkwerre/Nwangele/Njaba/Isu federal constituency of Imo State, Ugonna Ozurigbo

Justice Rigime has also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to issue a Certificate of Return to Kingsley Echendu of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The sacked Ugonna Ozurigbo had resigned his position as the Deputy Speaker of the Imo State House of Assembly last Wednesday.

Justice Rigime who delivered the judgment said that Harrison Nwadike, who is the plaintiff, was the “rightful winner” of the All Progressives Congress primary election in the federal constituency.

Neither PDP nor its candidate was a party to the suit.

Nwadike had taken his party, APC, and INEC to court over the submission of Ozurigbo’s name as the candidate of the party.
