APGA: Ekwunife sues Obiano over eligibility

Mr. Willie Obiano
The first runner-up in the Anambra governorship primaries of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, Mrs. Uche Ekwunife, has gone to court to challenge the eligibility of the party’s candidate in the November 16 election, Chief Willie Obiano.

Ekwunife, a member of the House of Representatives, is contending that the alleged double registration status of Obiano with the Independent National Electoral Commission as a voter disqualified him from contesting the election.

In the suit filed at the Federal High Court, Awka, in suit number FHC/AWK/CS/281/2013, Ekwunife is also asking the court to declare her as the candidate of APGA.

Obiano, APGA and INEC are the defendants in the suit. No date has been fixed for hearing in the suit.

Ekwunife is also seeking, among other reliefs, that INEC should be compelled to recognise her as the candidate of the party for the November 16 governorship election in Anambra State, based on Obiano’s double registration.

Obiano was alleged to have registered in Lagos and Anambra states respectively, which amounts to double registration as stipulated by the electoral act.
