The Federal High Court, Awka, Anambra State, presided over by Justice Isah Gafai, has further adjourned for judgement the suit filed against Governor Willie Obiano by an Onitsha-based hman rights lawyer, Barr. Jezie Ekejiuba.

Justice Gafai had previously scheduled to rule yesterday in the suit seeking to disqualify and nullify Obiano’s election over alleged submission of fake voter’s card in his INEC Form CF001 sworn affidavit contrary to Section 31 (1) to (6) of the Amended Electoral Act, 2010. He, however, announced the adjournment of the judgement without giving a date.

Ekejiuba had sued Obiano, the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA), Anambra State Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC), Prof. Chukwuemeka Onukaogu, and Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), asking for Obiano’s disqualification as APGA candidate and the nullification of his election of November 16 and 23, 2013, for allegedly giving false information by submitting a fake voter’s card.

When the matter was called up yesterday, Justice Gafai informed the parties of the pendency of a Motion on Notice to produce a document dated and filed on 6/11/2013 by the plaintiff which the record showed has not been moved even though the matter has been reserved for judgement.

Ekejiuba, who appears for himself, applied to the court to strike out the motion as he has gotten and filed Obiano’s INEC Form CF001 sworn affidavit sought in the motion.

C. B. Anyigbo, appearing for Governor Obiano, did not object to Ekejiuba’s prayer. The court struck out the motion and further adjourned the matter for judgement on a date to be communicated to the parties.

Justice Gafai had on October 23, 2014 fixed judgement without a date after the parties had addressed the court and adopted their written addresses.

News Express recalls that Ekejiuba had conceded that Obiano’s voter’s card with registration number ending with 332, which he submitted, is false because it is neither his voter’s card with registration number ending with 172, which he admitted he registered in Lagos, nor his voter’s card number ending with 121, which he admitted was a product of his purported voter’s transfer.

Dr.Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN, counsel for Obiano, who submitted a Certified True Copy of the Supreme Court judgement between Senator Chris Ngige and Obiano on the issue of disqualification, urged the court to dismiss the suit.
