The Appeal Court sitting in Owerri, the Imo State capital, on Thursday, nullified the election of Senator Mao Ohuabunwa of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and ordered a rerun election within 90 days.
Former governor of Abia State and candidate of the Progressive Peoples Alliance (PPA) in the March 28 election, Dr. Orji Kalu, had challenged the result of the Abia North senatorial poll, alleging unprecedented irregularities.
Accordingly, Justice I. G. Mbaba directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a fresh election to determine the authentic winner because the initial process was fundmentally flawed in all respective matters concerning the exercise, pointing out that the tribunal on Abia North Senatorial District poll erred in its verdict by upholding Ohuabunwa’s election.
