Moghalu’s Suit Rankles Andy Uba, APC

*Begs for New Judgement Date Outside Nov 4

From Omah Ngozi Awka
Nov 4,2021

The much anticipated judgement in the suit brought before the Federal High Court, Abuja presided over by Hon Justice Inyang Eden Ekwo by Chief George Moghalu against the All Progressives Congress (APC), Senator Andy Uba and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which was fixed for today, Thursday, Oct 4,2021 has been deferred.

The political camp of Senator Uba was apparently so rankled and traumatized by the effect of the likely outcome of the verdict, that he expressly wrote the presiding judge, begging for a new date outside Nov 4,2021.

Moghalu who was among the 14 governorship aspirants who had aspired for the same APC Anambra State Governorship ticket as Uba had dragged the party and Uba to Court, saying that he was not satisfied with how Uba emerged the candidate.


He had claimed that the party primary scheduled for June 26, 2021 did not actually hold or follow the stipulated format at all, hence should be cancelled and the party and her flagbearer delisted from the Nov 6,2021 Anambra Governorship election.

Moghalu, a towering foundation member of the APC also alleged that the Electoral Act and the party’s (APC)guidelines were brazenly truncated in the purported primary claimed to have been conducted on June 26.

In the documents filed before the court by his counsel, Chief Chris Uche SAN, Chief Moghalu lamented that the Nomination/Expression of Interest forms cost him and other aspirants a whopping N23 million each, whereas “no primary election known to law was conducted by the party.”

Moreso, he tendered copies of the official report of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) which confirmed that no primary election was conducted within the time stipulated by law. In addition he cited Sec 87 of the Electoral Act and Guidelines of the party (APC) that outlined the time to conduct any primary election to be between 8 a.m and 4 p.m. of the given date.

He had told the court that he and other delegates who had turned out to cast their votes in the primary election, as well as INEC officials who came to monitor the process waited till 7pm on June 26, 2021 without seeing party officials billed to conduct the primary election as planned. That they all left the venue/s when the reality dawned on them that no election would be conducted.
