|Senator for Enugu West|
May 1999 – March 2001
|Succeeded by||Ben-Collins Ndu|
|Born||Enugu State, Nigeria|
Reverend Dr. Hyde Onuaguluchi was elected Senator for the Enugu West constituency of Enugu State, Nigeria at the start of the Nigerian Fourth Republic, running on the All People's Party (APP) platform. He took office on 29 May 1999. His opponent, Chief Ben-Collins Ndu of the PDP, filed an election petition with the Election Tribunal on the basis that the figures were falsified and there were gross irregularities and conduct during the election in the Awgu and Aninri local governments. In March 2001, after a protracted legal battle, the Supreme Court annulled Onuaguluchi's election and ordered new elections. Ndu went on to be elected.
Onuaguluchi was Chairman of the Governing Council of the Institute of Management and Technology, Enugu, from 2004 to 2009.
