The Federal High Court sitting at Awka this morning in a ruling, refused to grant the requests Chief Chris Uba in a case filed by the defeated PDP candidate for Anambra south senatorial district against the February 23 national assembly election in the zone.
Chris Uba had approached the Federal High Court Awka seeking the leave of the court to arrest and prosecute the Returning Officer for Anambra south senatorial election, Prof Umenweke Nnama for declaring Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah of YPP winner of that election.
The PDP candidate earlier sort the order of the same court to stop INEC from issuing certificate of return to Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah which the court decline.
Today, the Federal High Court Awka after hearing the suit refused to grant their prayers. The PDP candidate also wanted the court to prosecute Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah and the Returning Officer which the court found as lacking in merit.
Eselu has not relented since the conclusion of the election in which Ubah defeated him and his brother in both their ward and LGA. He, in conspiracy with Ezeemo caused the Returning Officer in a frivolous petition to declare the concluded election inconclusive. It took the professor of law an immediate investigation to withdraw his letter to the REC Awka and reaffirmed his earlier declaration that Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah won the election squarely.
The federal high court has today laid to rest the various attempts by Chris Uba to upset the victory of Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah. The court in its ruling said that the RO can only stand as a witness in court if INEC which has the statutory power to conduct election deems it necessary to investigation any infraction during elections.
This is another victory for ndi Anambra south who have been librated from Uga brothers.
Once more congratulations to Dr Patrick Ifeanyi Ubah. Your victory is divine. It is for the emancipation of Ndigbo.
