Appeal Court Sacks Abia Assembly Deputy Majority Leader

The Court of Appeal, Owerri Division, sitting in Lagos has sacked the Deputy Majority Leader of the Abia State House of Assembly, Destiny Nwagwu of the Labour Party (LP).

The court held that the former lawmaker failed to prove his membership in the party before the March 18 2023 elections.

The three-man panel also held that Nwagwu was invalidly nominated and was not qualified to contest the election.

The court subsequently declared Hon. Aaron Uzodike of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), as the duly elected member representing Aba North constituency in the Abia State House of Assembly.

Meanwhile, the sacked Abia legislator, Nwagwu has led some of his LP members to protest his removal, alleging that the ruling was the highest form of injustice.
