Emordi wants 3 judges on her case disqualified

 By Tony Edike

ENUGU — embattled Senator Joy Emordi, representing Anambra North Senatorial District at the National Assembly, has instituted a fresh action at the Court of Appeal, Enugu, praying for an order disqualifying three justices of the court from sitting, adjudicating or taking part in any processes before the court relating to her earlier application for the interpretation of the two conflicting judgments delivered by the same Appeal Court on her election.

The justices are Amiru Sanusi, Ladan Tsamiya and Olu Arioola, all of the Enugu Division of the appellate court, who had sat on the appeal by the Anambra North Senatorial candidate of All Nigeria Peoples Party, ANPP, Alphonsus Igbeke, who was returned as winner  28 April 2007.

But before the ruling of the three Justices in Igbeke’s case, two of the Justices Ladan Tsamiya and Olu Arioola had sat in the appeal by the Labour Party senatorial candidate for Anambra North, Mrs. Jessie Balonwu in which they declared Emodi of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, winner of the same election.
