Kogi House Of Assembly Member Sacked By Court 5

A Federal High Court in Abuja, on Friday, sacked the lawmaker representing Ibaji constituency in the Kogi State House of Assembly, Atule Egbunu.

Ruling on the lawsuit filed by an APC chieftain, Joseph Enemona, against APC and four others challenging September 3, 2020 primary for the nomination of the party candidate, Egbunu, Justice Inyang Ekwo ordered the inauguration of Daniel Enefola of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the lawmaker for Ibaji constituency, having come second with 4,564 votes in the December 5, 2020 state election.

Ekwo nullified the election of Egbunu who was declared the winner of the bye-election for polling 8, 515 votes, on grounds of being unlawfully nominated by the All Progressive Congress (APC).
