Daniel Osiagor-drove a justice Federal High Court in Umuahia, the Abia State capital, has sacked Ikechukwu Martins Apugo, as the All Progressives Congress (APC) contender for Ikwuano/Umuahia Federal Constituency in the closed 2019 National Assembly decision in the state.

Equity Osiagor decided for a pre-race suit documented by previous Speaker of the State House of Assembly and one of the APC competitors in the 2018 essential decision, Rt. Hon. Stanley Ohazuruka, testing the qualification of Apugo.

In his judgment, Justice Osiagor stated, “APC law says that it is just the Collation Officer that can declare the aftereffects of the essential race, the declaration must be made in Abuja, after ordering the outcomes. The grouping officer affirmed as The Plaintiff’s Witness as (PW1), telling the court that whatever other records that any individual conveys or will convey to the court according to the outcomes are insecure.

“In the wake of affirming, the offended party’s observer couldn’t see delicate any unique outcome sheets marked by him and the APC National Chairman as a result for Mazurka. That after gathering of the outcomes, the secretary of APC ordered and reported the issue here in Umuahia. It negated the proof demonstration and APC law. INEC couldn’t demonstrate that Apugo won the crucial decision.
