Court of Appeal Reinstates Ifeanyi Ubah After Being SACKED As Senator

An Abuja Court of Appeal has reinstated Ifeanyi Ubah as Senator representing Anambra South senatorial district after being sacked by a federal high court.

The judgement was delivered after Senator Ifeanyi Ubah filed an appeal, challenging his sack from the National Assembly. A three-man panel of the court led by Justice Stephen Adah, was unanimous that the judgement delivered by Justice Bello Kawu was a nullity on grounds that the originating process was incompetent having not been signed by a lawyer as required; the judgment was given without jurisdiction.

The panel which also held that Ifeanyi Ubah was denied fair hearing by the FCT High Court, stressed that the Court was without the requisite territorial jurisdiction to have entertained the case.

A perpetual injunction restraining the Clerk of the Senate and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from acting on the April 11, 2019 judgment was issued by the Appeal Court, after it was voided for being a nullity.
