Certificate Forgery: Court Sacks Ifeanyi Ubah from Senate

A Federal High Court sitting in Kubwa area of Abuja presided over by Justice Bello Kawu has sacked Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young People’s Party(YPP) from the upper chamber of the National Assembly, the House of Senates over Certificate Forgery scandal.

ngg.ng gathered that Ifeanyi Ubah used forged NECO certificate to contest the position of Senator to represent Anambra South Senatorial District in the House of Senates in the February 23, 2019 National Assembly elections.

In a ruling on Friday, January 17, Justice Kawu, however, held that Senator Ubah’s application to vacate its judgement lacked merit and accordingly dismissed it.

This reaffirms the Justice Kawu’s April 11, 2019 judgment which ordered INEC to withdraw Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s Certificate of Return as Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial District and issue a fresh one to Obinna Uzoh of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who was the immediate runner’s up to Ifeanyi Ubah in the February 23,2019 National Assembly election held in Anambra state.

Justice Kawu has ordered INEC to issue a fresh Certificate of Return to Obinna Uzoh of the PDP and be sworn-in as Senator elect in the February 23, 2019 National Assembly election in Anambra to represent the people of Anambra South Senatorial District in the House of Senates.
