New Lawmaker Sworn In To Replace Uche Ekwunife Who Was Sacked By Court Of Appeal

By Danjuma Aliyu 

Victor Umeh, has been sworn into office as the senator representing Anambra central. 

Senator Umeh, a member of the All Progressives Grand Alliance, APGA, who won last week’s senatorial elections in Anambra state, replaces Uche Ekwunife.

The APGA chieftain, who was presented with his Certificate of Return from the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC, yesterday, was officially welcomed to the red chamber by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki.

In December 2015, the Court of Appeal sacked Mrs Ekwunife, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and ordered a rerun of her election, following an appeal filed by Senator Umeh.
