Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah representing Anambra South Senatorial District has petitioned the President of the Court of Appeal, Abuja, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, urging her to decline invitation “to interfere in judicial process.”

Ubah of the Young Progressives Party (YPP) made the application on a pending Election Petition Tribunal matter between him and the immediate past Senator Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress and Chief Chris Uba of the Peoples Democratic Party.

The trio are currently before the Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Awka over litigation that arose after the conduct of 2019 National Assembly Election which Ubah of the YPP was declared the winner by INEC.

A copy of Ubahs petition signed by his counsel Messrs Onyechi Ikpeazu (SAN) and D.C. DeNwigwe was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Monday in Awka.

Ubah said that Chris Uba, the petitioner, had earlier filed and served on him a motion for consolidation of EPT/AN/SEN/09/2019 filed by Sen. Andy Uba.

On May 31, 2019, when the petition with number EPT/AN/SEN/11/2019 came up before Panel C, the Chairman, Hon. Justice Onovo disclosed to the parties that the petition, EPT/AN/SEN/09/2019 had been transferred from Panel B to panel C, he said.

Ubah, who is the second respondent in the two election petitions filed by Chris Uba (PDP) and Sen. Andy Uba (APC), noted that he was surprised to hear that Andy went through the back door seeking de-consolidation of the matter.

The issue that arises here is whether in the face of the ruling of the tribunal on the 12th of June, 2019, on consolidating the two matters is, can any of the party apply by administrative means to de-consolidation the petition? he questioned.
