Tribunal sitting in Umuahia have nullified the election of the
Senate Chief Whip, Orji Kalu, for Abia North Senatorial

approached the tribunal to nullify the election of Kalu, who
contested the Feb. 2019 election on the platform of the All
Progressives Congress.
The tribunal sitting in Umuahia the Abia State capital, ordered a
rerun of the election.
According to the tribunal, the election is expected to take place
within the next 90 days in some wards in Ohafia, Arochukwu,
