Published

on

A member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), George Moghalu, has dragasked the Federal High Court, Abuja to compel the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to delist the name of Andy Uba and the party from the list of political parties and candidates for the November 6 Anambra gubernatorial election.

Naija News reports that Moghalu was among the aggrieved 14 aspirants who purchased forms to contest for the governorship election under the platform of the APC.

Moghalu, in the suit dated and filed July 8, 2021, by his lawyer, Chris Uche, SAN, alleged that the party failed to conduct a valid primary election for the selection and nomination of the party’s candidate in the forthcoming election.

He specifically asked the court to declare that the APC failed to conduct a valid primary election in line with the provisions of the 1999 constitution as amended, the Electoral Act and the APC’s constitution and guidelines for election and demanded the sum of N122.5 million damages from the APC.

Moghalu claimed that the sum of N22.5 million was meant for the refund of payment for the expression of interest form and nomination form.

He is also asking the court to order the APC to pay him another sum of N100 million as “exemplary and general damages for the breach of contract to commence and conclude primary election and or breach of Section 87 of the Electoral Act, 2010 (as amended) and the regulations and guidelines of the political party.”

Defendants in the suit marked FHCABJCS6482021 are the All Progressives Congress, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and Andy Uba.

Parts of the reliefs sought included a declaration by the court that the APC has no candidate to field in the November 6 governorship poll in Anambra State having failed to conduct a valid primary in line with the law.

He also wanted the court to declare that Uba is not a candidate in the forthcoming election because the said primary that produced him as the candidate of the APC did not comply with the provisions of the law.

The plaintiff, in the motion exparte dated and filed July 13, 2021, also prayed the court to make an order for the expeditious hearing of the suit so as not to deny him justice.

However, the court is yet to fix a date for the hearing.
