Ezeala in the suit alleged certain irregularities in Kalu’s names on his academic certificates.

The court held it was a pre-election matter and therefore statute-barred.

The court added that Kalu who is representing Bende federal constituency of State in the House of Representatives fully complied with the law in his change of name, noting that the claimant also failed to differentiate or prove his claims of forgery and impersonation.

While reacting to the verdict, Kalu said: “As I have always said, God is the God of justice. As a believer in God, I was confident that He would not allow injustice to be meted against me.
