APC Jubilates As Court Sacks Imo PDP House Of Reps Member — Lifestyle News

The National Assembly Elections Petitions Tribunal sitting in Owerri, Imo State has sacked Obinna Onwubuariri, a member of the House of Representatives, Lifestyle News reports

Onwubuariri, is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party,PDP, and represented Isiala Mbano/Onuimo/Okigwe federal constituency of Imo State.

In her judgment
which lasted for about two hours, chairman of the Panel, R. Harriman,
ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to conduct a fresh
poll in the federal constituency within 90 days from the date of the
judgment.

According to the Jurist, the petitioner, Princess
Miriam Onuoha, of the All Progressives Congress, was able to prove her
petition beyond reasonable doubt.

The jurist said that INEC and
the first respondent were unable to defend the allegations of
over-voting, mutilation of figures, and the reduction of the
petitioner’s votes preferred against them by the petitioner.

The
panel, which ordered a fresh poll in the federal constituency,
instructed that the first respondent’s certificate of return should be
withdrawn immediately.

Harriman said the declaration of the
lawmaker who is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party, was done in
utter disregard of the Electoral Act, as amended.

The
petitioner’s aide, Israel Onyema, told newsmen after the judgment that
his principal would have been happier if the tribunal had declared the
APC candidate the winner of the February 21 poll.

Onyema contended that his principal won the election in the three local government areas that make up the federal constituency.

An aide to the sacked lawmaker said his principal would appeal the judgment.
