HAPPENING LIVE:  Bye Bye As National Assembly Replaces Buhari’s Sacked Minister, Today

The House of Representatives, has sworn-in Chike Okafor, as the replacement for Emeka Nwajuba, who is now a Minister, following a Court of Appeal judgment.

Chike, who was earlier sacked by a Lower Court and replaced by Nwajuba, was sworn-in during plenary, today (Tuesday).

Recall, that the Abuja Division of the Court of Appeal, had in August, sacked Emeka Nwajuba, as the Member representing Ehimembano/Ihiteuboma/Obowo Federal Constituency of Imo State, at the House of Representatives. He was however, already a Minister-Designate for the President Muhammadu Buhari administration by then.

With the verdict of the court, Okafor of the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC, is now a new Honourable Member of the House of Representatives.
