OrderPaperToday – The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has fixed January 13, 2018 as the date to conduct the senatorial district election for Anambra Central.
This is coming on the heels of a ruling from the Abuja Division of the court of appeal on November 21 to conduct a re-run within 90 days.
The judgment was as a result of an appeal filed by the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA)’s candidate, Victor Umeh.
Umeh challenged the judgment of the federal high court on February 28 which ordered the inclusion of Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate, Senator Uche Ekwenife in the re-run.
The judgment excluded the PDP from participating in the poll.
