The Supreme Court Today (Wednesday) ruled that Senators Andy Uba, Stella Oduah, all other lawmakers representing Anambra State on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party in the National Assembly as validly elected.
The ruling of the apex court followed request for an interpretation of its earlier judgment on the PDP leadership tussle in the state.
