Hon. Chudi Uwazurike

The Supreme Court Friday sacked Hon. Chudi Uwazurike, who has been occupying the House of  Representatives seat for  Okigwe South federal constituency of Imo state. 

The apex court dismissed Uwazurike's appeal which challenged the decisions of the lower courts that  Hon. Austine Nwachukwu was the validly nominated candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the election. Justice Walter Onoghene who led five other Justices, dismissed Hon. Uwazurike's appeal as lacking in merit and competence, describing the application as most frivolous which the court cannot entertain.

Counsel to the respondent, Mr. Kelvin Nwufo, said justice has been finally served by the court when it affirmed the judgment of the lower courts which upheld the nomination of Hon. Austine Nwachukwu as the valid candidate nominated through the primary election but was wrongfully substituted by the PDP.
