The National and State Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal in Abia State on Monday sacked former governor of the state, Orji Uzor Kalu as Senator.

Kalu is the Senate’s Chief Whip and represents Abia North Senatorial District at the National Assembly.

In view of this development, the Election tribunal has ordered a re-run election for the Abia North Senatorial District.

The former governor was elected on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The three-man tribunal led by Justice Cornelius Akintayo ordered the supplementary election while giving judgment in a petition brought before it by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the election, Mao Ohuabunwa, who had challenged the victory of the Senate Chief Whip, Orji Kalu, in the Senatorial election.

Kalu was declared winner of the election by the returning officer, Dr. Charles Anumudu, which Ohuabunwa described as “excess electoral fraud and broad daylight robbery.”

He, therefore, approached the tribunal to seek justice.
