Benue Assembly Deputy Speaker sacked by Appeal Court

Benue State House of Assembly Deputy Speaker, Christopher Adaji has been sacked as the lawmaker representing Ohimini state constituency on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The Court of Appeal which sat in Makurdi today November 8, upheld the judgement of the National and State House of Assembly’s Election Tribunal which first sacked the Deputy Speaker. 
The appeal filed by the PDP and Mr Christopher Adaji were dismissed on grounds of lacking merit. Justice I. G. Mbaba who delivered the lead judgment also agreed with the decision of the Tribunal that the declaration and return of the Deputy Speaker by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as winner of the 2019 Ohimini State Constituency election, without rerun in Otega and Ogadagba was invalid by reason of non- compliance with Electoral Act 2010 (as amended).
The cost of N200, 000 was awarded against the appellants for each of the appeals as cost by the Court of Appeal Justice who also ordered NEC to conduct fresh election in the two polling units within 90 days from the day of the judgment.
