supreme Court Orders a rerun for Anambara Central Senatorial District

The tribunal and the Appeal Court had ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to conduct a rerun election for the district. However, Ekwunife not satisfied with the verdicts approached the Supreme Court.

The Apex court ruled that until the National Assembly amends the constitution, the Supreme Court cannot adjudicate on such matter.

That ends the struggle on Ekwunife vs Umeh as it relates to the Anambra Central Senatorial election tussle.

With the Supreme Court decision today, the judgement of the Appeal Court Enugu on December 7, 2015 stands.

The judgement nullified the election of Anambra Central Senatorial zone held on March 28, 2015 and ordered for a rerun.

INEC, in compliance with that judgement, had fixed March 5, 2016 to conduct an election into the senatorial zone.
