FG withdraws corruption charges against Supreme Court chief registrar, others

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has sacked a member representing Onitsha North/South federal constituency in the House of Representatives.

It was learnt that the court directed the Independent National Election Commission (INEC), to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Idu Emeka Godwin, and to issue a fresh certificate of return to Lynda Chuba-Ikpeazu, after holding that she was wrongly substituted.

Passing the verdict, Justice Adeniyi Ademola also ordered the National Assembly, specifically, the House of Representatives to swear in the plaintiff, Chuba-Ikpeazu, as a member of the House.

It would be recalled, Chuba-Ikpeazu who won the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary election conducted on December 7, 2014 had gone to court to challenge her substitution with Idu Emeka Godwin by the party.
