APGA Woes Deepens As Ekwunife Drags Obiano To Court


The All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, now has a fresh set of crises to deal with as the first runner-up its governorship primaries in Anambra State, 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, INEC, as a voter should have disqualified him from contesting the election, in the first place.

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.

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

Obiano was caught on INEC computer to have registered in Lagos and Anambra states respectively, an act that amounts to double registration as stipulated by the electoral act.
