Lawan swears in Imo-West senator, Frank Ibezim

Frank Ibezim

Frank Ibezim has been sworn in as the senator representing Imo North senatorial district after three months of a legal tussle with Ifeanyi Ararume, a contender for the seat.

The Senate administered an oath of allegiance to Frank Ibezim (APC/ Imo) as a member of the 9th Senate.

This followed the Supreme Court decision affirming him as an authentic candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for Imo -West by-election.

The oath was administered by the Clerk of the Senate, Dauda El- Ladan, shortly after the commencement of Tuesday’s plenary.

The bye-election for the Imo -North Senatorial District followed the death of Ben Uwajumogu in December 2019.

The Supreme Court had in its judgment declared Mr Ibezim as APC’ authentic candidate.

The Court had set aside his disqualification as the authentic candidate of the APC for the December 5, 2020, Imo North Senatorial election.
