BREAKING: Solomon Onah Wins As Appeal Court Upholds Sack Of Enugu LP Lawmaker


The court of Appeal sitting in Lagos has upheld the sack of Hon. Ijere Obinna Anthony of the Labour as the member representing Udenu Constituency in the state House of Assembly.

Journlist101 reports that on September 30th, a three-man panel led by Honourable Justice Adie Attoe Onyebueke while delivering their judgment on the petition filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Solomon Izuchukwu Onah (JAC Solo), averred that the Labour Party’s candidate wasn’t qualified to stand for the election because he didn’t resign from his place of work (University of Nigeria Nsukka) withing the stipulated time in line with the new electoral act.

Displeased with the judgement, the Labour Party candidate went to the appeal court to challenge the decision of the tribunal.

However, in their judgement today, the appellate court dismissed the appeal for lacking in merit and upheld the decision of the lower court.

The Court ordered the electoral umpire to issue a certificate of return to Hon. Onah accordingly
