The National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Enugu has nullified the election of the Labour Party’s candidate, Professor Sunday Nnamchi as the House of Representatives member for the Enugu East/Isi-Uzo Federal Constituency in Enugu State.
Delivering judgement in the petition filed by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Prince Cornelius Nnaji, the three-man panel of justices led by A. M. Abubakar, declared the petitioner as the duly elected candidate of the election conducted on February 25, 2023.
Prince Nnaji, a one-term federal lawmaker, had challenged the declaration of Nnamchi by the Independent National Electoral Commission as the winner of the election, noting that the respondent was not duly sponsored and qualified to contest under the candidacy of the Labour Party.
