Breaking News: Supreme Court Sacks Stella Oduah, Andy Uba from Senate

The Supreme Court today sacked the two remaining senators in the National Assembly from Anambra State. A full panel of Nigeria’s Supreme Court of Nigeria sitting in Abuja, on Friday, sacked the senators and members of the House of Representatives from Anambra State.

The decision swept away a host of lawmakers from Anambra State, including the Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District, Stella Oduah and her counterpart representing Anambra South Senatorial District, Andy Ubah. Also affected are members of the House of Representatives elected on the ticket of the PDP. Senator Uche Ekwunife had earlier been sacked.

Remember Senators Stella Oduah was former Minister of Aviation and Andy Uba a former Special Adviser to former President Olusegun Obasanjo on Domestic Affairs. Both of them are the two remaining Anambra senators who were sacked.


Chris Uba, younger brother to Andy Uba, and Prince Emeka are expected to take over seats vacated by  Andy Uba and Stella Oduah respectively.

Former Senator Annie Okonkwo is in line to represent the PDP in a forthcoming election to fill a senatorial seat held by Uche Ekwunife who was sacked last December by the Court of Appeal. Remember in December 2014, the Federal High Court had ruled that it was only the constitutionally recognized state party leadership led by Ejike Oguebego that could organize the party primaries.

Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court upheld an earlier decision by Justice Chukwu of the Federal High Court laying out the proper procedures for selection of the PDP’s legislative candidates.

Also, Supreme Court’s ruling today reaffirmed the High Court’s verdict, declaring that the Ejike Oguebego-led PDP executive had the sole right to hold the primaries in Anambra State.
