A Federal High Court sitting in Awka, Anambra State, on Thursday, nullified the election of Mr Emeka Ibe as the chairman of the All Progressives Congress in the state.
Chief Uzochukwu Onyekwere, a member of the APC in Anambra and chairmanship aspirant had gone to court to contest the May 19 state elective congress that brought in Ibe, over unlawful exclusion.
Defendants in the suit were Okey Ezea, Rep. Kingsley Chinda, Chairman of the APC Congress Committee in Anambra, Ibe, the acclaimed winner and the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Onyekwere told the court that he was a bonafide member of the APC and was entitled to aspire for the office of the party’s chairman in Anambra.
