Sekibo Crises Out: Judgement nullifying my election missing


Senator George Thompson Sekibo, has claimed that the judgement of the Rivers state elections petition tribunal that ordered his removal from the Senate could not be accessed.



Last week, a three-man panel sitting in Abuja sacked Sekibo and declared Hon. Andrew Uchendu, the petitioner, winner of the senatorial election.

The Tribunal directed the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw the Certificate of Return issued to Sekibo and issue a fresh certificate of return Uchendu.

Sekibo told reporters in Abuja on Tuesday that he will appeal the judgement to obtain justice.
The Senator representing Rivers East senatorial district, also noted that he and his team of lawyers have made several attempts to the tribunal to obtain the judgment, but were told that judgement was missing.

“I have the right to appeal and we have made several attempts to the tribunal to obtain the judgement but they said it is missing and my judgement is the only one not seen. They have done their best and the onus is on me to appeal the judgement.

“I want to appeal to the judgement panel to bring out the judgement they delivered on my matter. If my judgement continues to be missing, it is violation of justice and infringement on my fundamental human rights,” he said.
