The embattled lawmaker said, “Even in the Electoral Act; anything after the announcement of an election (result) is a post-election which should go through the Tribunal, not FCT High Court.
“Even the FCT High Court has no territorial jurisdiction over this matter. The matter was a matter which took place in Anambra South senatorial district.”
“In the court record, I was not served; which is still till date. Our party doesn’t run on rubber stamp; our party runs on seal stamp and there is a name they claimed is theparty’s secretary who is not known to theparty,” he added.
Giving his ruling on Friday, Justice Bello Kawu ofthe FCT High Court had refused to reverse the judgement ofthe court delivered in December which removed Ubah as a member ofthe Senate.
He, however, ordered that Mr Obinna Uzoh ofthe Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), who had challenged Ubah’s victory in the February 23 poll, be recognised as thewinneroftheelection.
The judge also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to issue a certificate of return to Uzoh, the applicant, as the senator-elect in the district.
In his prayer, the PDP candidate had claimed that his YPP counterpart presented a forged National Examination Council (NECO) secondary school certificate to INEC, which enabled him to contest the Anambra South senatorial election.
