The Anambra Central Senatorial seat candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Victor Umeh, has cautioned his opponent and candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Uche Ekwunife, to desist from further moves ahead of the fresh election ordered by the Appeal Court in the senatorial zone.

According to Umeh, the judgment cited that Mrs Ekwunife was not a product of a valid party primary and therefore, was disqualified from running in the race as there was no window for primaries again.

Reacting to the development, Mrs Ekwunife advised Mr Umeh to desist from illusion and seek better interpretation to the judgment as she is still in the race as soon as her party, the PDP, concludes its upcoming primary slated for January 9 in which she expressed confidence that it would be in her favor.

The Court of Appeal had on December 7, upheld the suit brought to it by the APGA candidate, and nullified Senator Ekwunife’s election as Senator representing Anambra Central Senatorial Zone on the basis that she was not a product of a valid party primary and therefore not duly and legitimately nominated.

The court ordered for a fresh election within 90 days of the judgment. (Channels TV)
