Ebonyi election tribunal sacks PDP Rep member

The National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal has sacked Lazarus Ogbee of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and a member representing Ikwo\Ezza South Federal Constituency.

The tribunal sitting in Abakiliki, Ebonyi State on Monday agreed with Chinedu Ogar of the All Progressive Congress, (APC)  that his votes were reduced and restored the votes canceled by INEC in over 10,000 wards in Ikwo and Onueke Urban in Ezza South.

The Tribunal headed by Justice Sika Henry Aprioku declared Ogar winner with the final results of 36,238 votes against PDP’s 33,263 votes.

The court also directed INEC to immediately issue the Ogar certificate of return and withdraw the one issued earlier to Ogbee.
