APPEAL COURT SACKS HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER_Ada Nkong

An Appeal Court sitting in Kaduna Monday, sacked the house of Rep’s majority leader representing Tudunwada/Doguwa Federal Constituency, Alhassan Ado Doguwa of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Doguwa,as the Majority Leader, is the third ranking member of the House after Speaker and Deputy Speaker.

Reports say the court, nullified the entire election in the two local government areas Mr Doguwa represents as the whole process was marred by irregularities.

In a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice Oludotun Adefope-Okojie, the appellate court held that the entire election could not hold as other parties were omitted from the final declaration of the result.

The court said the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, made a substantial breach by writing the results of only two parties out of 53 parties that participated in the election in Form EC 8 (II) E.
