Breaking News: Tribunal Sack Enugu Labour Party Rep Member


The National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Enugu, has nullified the return of the Labour Party’s candidate, Prof. Sunday Nnamchi as the House of Representatives member for Enugu East/Isi-Uzo Federal Constituency in Enugu State.

The three-man panel led by A. M. Abubakar declared the candidate of People’s Democratic Party, Hon. Prince Cornelius Nnaji, as the duly elected candidate of the election conducted on 25th February, 2023.

Prince Nnaji, a one-term Federal lawmaker, had challenged the declaration of Prof. Nnamchi by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as the winner of the election on the grounds that the respondent was not duly sponsored and qualified to contest the election under the candidacy of Labour Party.

In its Judgment on the petition, the tribunal agreed with the petitioner that the candidate of the Labour Party was not qualified to contest the election.

Meanwhile, the judgment has sparked off jubilation across the 23 Wards of the Constituency.
