THE Supreme Court has nullified the participation of Andy Uba, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in last year’s Anambra State governorship election.

  A five-member panel of justices of Supreme Court handed down the decision in a judgment delivered in Abuja, today.

The court held that the APC breached its guidelines for the conduct of primaries in the election that produced Uba as the party’s candidate for the poll.

  It will be recalled that an Abuja Federal High Court presided by Justice Inyang Ekwo had in a judgment on December 20, 2021 nullified the outcome of the APC governorship election which produced Uba as the party’s gubernatorial candidate.

  The decision of the Abuja Federal High Court was upheld by the Court of Appeal in a judgment on February 23, 2022.
