The Federal High Court in Abuja, presided over by Justice Inyang Ekwo has nullified the candidacy of Senator Andy Uba for participation in the governorship election held in Anambra State on November 6 2021.

In a judgment on Monday, the Judge held that Uba was never a candidate in the election having emerged from an illegally conducted primary election by the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Justice Ekwo added that the plaintiff, George Moghalu succeeded in proving that the APC did not conduct a valid primary election from which Uba claimed to have emerged as the party’s candidate.

The judge further ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to delete Andy Uba from its record as a candidate in the election and ordered the APC to refund to Moghalu, the sum of N22.5 million, which was the amount he paid for expression of interest and nomination forms since the party failed to conduct a valid primary.
