At the Court of Appeal Abuja division on Tuesday, two members of the state assembly elected on the platform of the PDP kept their seats as the court upheld their victories. However one member lost his seat. Unfortunately for the PDP, that was the speaker of the state assembly, Hon. Aniekan Uko.
The three-member Appeal panel led by Justice Moshood Oredola Abdulrahman held that the election of Uko who represents Ibesikpo Asuntan constituency was marred by malpractices.
The court ordered INEC to conduct fresh elections in the constituency within 90 days.
