The National and State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Abia State has nullified the election of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu.
The tribunal also ordered for a rerun election for the Abia North Senatorial District.
Kalu was elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the February 23 election.
The former Abia state governor is currently the Senate Chief Whip.
Mao Ohuabunwa of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) had challenged his victory at the tribunal
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared
Kalu winner of the senatorial election after securing 30,203 votes
against Ohuabunwa’s 20,801 votes.
Although the tribunal upheld
Ohuabunwa’s argument that Kalu was not duly elected, it ordered that a
rerun be conducted in selected polling units within 90 days.
The polling units which cut across three local government areas, were identified as where votes were cancelled during the poll.
tribunal had earlier dismissed a petition by Anagha Anagha, candidate
of the All Grassroots Alliance (AGA), challenging Kalu’s victory.
Kalu has vowed to appeal the ruling.
It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy.
