A Federal High Court in Asaba on Thursday, nullified the All Progressives Congress (APC)’s governorship primary election conducted in Delta state.
The plaintiff Hon Victor Ochei, through his lawyer Ahmed Rahi, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), asked the court to declare that the APC’s gubernatorial primary election that held on Sunday, September 30, 2018, was illegal and unlawful on the ground that delegates unknown to the law were used for the exercise in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/1085/2018, Vanguard reports.
Recall that the Emerhor faction of the Cyril Ogodo-led state executive had dragged the Ogboru/Omo-Agege faction of the Jones Erue-led Delta APC executive, Adams Oshiomhole, the APC National Chairman, and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to court over the conduct of the wards, local government areas and state congresses.
Among other prayers sought by the plaintiffs was a declaration that candidates that emerged from the primaries conducted by the Ogodo-led executive constitute the authentic list of candidates for the 2019 general election.
