Imo House of Reps Member, Obinna Onwubuariri Sacked By Tribunal
Mr Obinna Onwubuariri, the lawmaker representing Isiala Mbano/Onuimo/Okigwe federal constituency of Imo state at the House of Representatives was sacked by a National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal which sat in Owerri on Wednesday September 18.
The House of Representatives member who was first elected in 2015 on the platform of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), was sacked following a petition filed by Princess Miriam Onuoha of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was ordered to withdraw Onwubuariri’s Certificate of Return and also conduct a fresh election within 90 days from the date of the judgement.
Mr Onwubuariri’s election was nullified on grounds of over voting, mutilation of figures, reduction of the petitioner’s votes preferred against them by the petitioner.
