The Court of Appeal, Abuja Division, on Thursday nullified the judgment of a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory delivered on January 17, 2020, which ordered the removal of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah, the Senatorial Candidate of the Young Progressive Party, as lawmaker representing Anambra South Senatorial District at the National Assembly.

Delivering judgment in a motion on notice by Ubah where he raised jurisdictional issues on the competence of unsigned court processes by the respondents, Justice Stephen Adah leading a three-man panel said the motion “had merit and the reliefs are fully granted” and held that Ubah was duly elected by people of his senatorial district. .

Ubah had argued through his lawyer, Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN), that the trial judge, Bello Kawu, assumed jurisdiction in the case when in fact there were no valid processes before him to confer jurisdiction on him.
