Kalu, the Deputy Speaker of the House, is overjoyed with the decision’s upholding victory.



Rep. Benjamin Kalu, Deputy Speaker of the House of Representatives, has praised an Umuahia High Court decision that validated his victory in the 2023 National Assembly elections.

Kalu was quoted as declaring that he had been vindicated in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Levinus Nwabughiogu.

“I have never questioned the judiciary’s ability to do justice at any level.” My confidence in them has never wavered.

“It has once again vindicated me on this issue while also upholding my mandate as the elected representative of the people of Bende Federal Constituency in Abia.” “I’m thankful,” Kalu remarked.

Remember that Mr Frank Chinasa, the Labour Party’s candidate in the National Assembly elections, had petitioned the tribunal seeking the nullification of Kalu’s election due to purported contradiction in his name.

However, in his decision on the matter on August 25, 2021, Justice O. A. Chijioke decided in favor of Kalu and awarded a cost to the petitioner for wasting the court’s time in a frivolous litigation.

Kalu thanked the judiciary for recognizing that he followed due process and other existing legislation to validate his name.

The politician expressed gratitude to the people of Bende Federal Constituency, on whose mandate he was elected to the House of Representatives.

The deputy speaker committed not to take the mandate of the people or the demands of his current position for granted.

He, on the other hand, urged his “political detractors” to avoid frivolities, recognize his rights under existing laws, and embrace God’s will as well as the judgement of the tribunal and the people of Bende.

Kalu encouraged LP candidates to join him in pursuing good laws for the sake of the country. (NAN)
