Appeal Court Reserves Judgement on Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s Case

Appeal court to fix a new date for Sen. Ubah’s case: The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja on Thursday has reserved judgment in the appeal filed by Senator Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Progressive Party (YPP).

Senator Ubah who was removed as a senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District in the National Assembly is challenging the judgment that replaced him with Dr Uzoh of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who came second at the election.

A three-man panel of justices of the appeal court chaired by Justice Stephen Adah reserved judgment on the case but yet to fix a new date for the hearing.

This came through after the lawyer representing Senator Ubah adopted his written address asked the court to sustain their appeal.

However, lawyers to two of the respondents, while adopting their written addresses asked the court to dismiss the appeal on the evidence that the court lacks the jurisdiction.

It will be recalled that Justice Bello Kawu of the Federal Capital Territory High Court sitting at Kubwa, sacked Senator Ubah as the lawmaker representing Anambra South Senatorial District on the ground that he (Ubah) used a forged National Examination Council (NECO) certificate to contest for the senatorial election for Anambra South on February 23, 2019.
