Abia tribunal sacks Orji Kalu as Senator

The National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Umuahia, Abia State, has nullified the election of a former governor of the state, Orji Uzor Kalu.

Okay.ng reports that the tribunal ordered a rerun election for the Abia north senatorial district.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had earlier declared Kalu, who contested under the platform of the All Progressives Congress to represent Abia North Senatorial District at the federal legislature as winner of that exercise but in its ruling on Monday, the tribunal upturned that verdict.
