The Senator representing Anambra South Senatorial district in the Senate, Ifeanyi Ubah, Tuesday rubbished media reports that he has been sacked as a member of the National Assembly.
The Senator, a member of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) who spoke while responding to questions from reporters urged his constituents to ignore the social media reports about his alleged removal from the Senate by an order of the court.
A Federal High Court sitting in Kubwa, Abuja had allegedly sacked him from the Senate based on a suit instituted against him by Mr. Obinna Uzor.
Uzor had asked the Court to nullify the election of Ubah for allegedly falsifying his school certificate.
The Senator whos a football club featuring in the country’s apex League (Nigeria Professional Football League) explained that the purported suit was filed against him in March while the court ruled on it in April without his knowledge or that of his legal team.
He assured his constituents and Nigerians that the judgement would not stand because he had already approached the same Court in a bid to upturn the ruling.
He said the court had fixed January 5, 2020 to determine the application he filed to vacate the judgement
