  The Court of Appeal sitting in Lagos, has sacked Hon. Stainless Nwodo as the member representing Igbo-Etiti/Uzo-Uwani federal constituency and declared Rt. Hon. Martins Oke of the Peoples Democratic Party as winner of the election.

The appellate court set aside the judgement of the tribunal which upheld the election of the National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal that sat in Enugu.

Journalist101 reports that the tribunal led by Justice Nusirat ruled that the petitioner failed to prove the case of forgery against Hon. NWodo and pointed out that there was a contradiction in the letter from Enugu State Examination Development Centre (EDC).

The Judge ruled that no witness came from EDC to testify against the certificate and said that the issue of inconsistencies in the name couldn’t be proved by the petitioners.

The panel, thereafter, dismissed the petition for lack of merit.

But in a judgement delivered via zoom on Monday, the appellate court said that the Labour party candidate and said that the appeal had merits and thus, succeeded.

The panel said they will give details of the ruling on a later date.
