Court orders reinstatement of PDP Obiora Okonkwo as Anambra Central Senator

 

 

The Abuja Federal High Court has ordered the immediate reinstatement of Obiora Okonkwo of the Peoples Democratic Party as the senator representing the Anambra Central Senatorial District.

Justice John Tsoho gave the ruling on Wednesday after counsel to other parties in the matter withdrew their arguments against the plaintiff.

The judge said he was inclined to grant the request sort by the plaintiff because all the defendants indicated that they had no objection to the suit.

The defendants who consented to the claims sort by Mr. Okonkwo are the PDP; its former chairman, Adamu Muazu; INEC; and Uche Ekwunife, a former senator and former member of the PDP.
