Eseme Eyibo From The House Of Representatives was removed and Court Declared  Chief Solomon Ewuga Winner of Nassarawa North Senatorial Poll

 

The Supreme Court on Friday declared Lady Margery Chuba-Okadigbo; wife of the late former Senate President, Chuba Okadigbo as Senator representing Anambra North Senatorial District.

 

It affirmed her as the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the April 16, 2011 election.

Dismissing the appeal filed by John Emeka, the apex court agreed with Yusuf Alli (SAN) who led Sikiru Oke that she polled the highest vote at the lawful primaries conducted by the party.

 

The Court also upheld the judgment of the Court of Appeal which declared Solomon Ewuga as the Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) candidate and Senator representing Nasarawa-North Senatorial District.

 

It dismissed the appeal of Yusuf Musa Nagogo who claimed he won the party's primaries.

In another Judgment, the apex court in a decision delivered by Justice Bode Rhodes-Vivour declared Bassey  Dan-Abia as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP] for and the member representing the Eket Federal Constituency. It dismissed the appeal by Hon. Eseme Eyiboh for lacking in merit.

 

The Court agreed with Prince Lateef Fagbemi (SAN) that only a political party can determine or conduct a primary to choose its candidate in an election.

It affirmed the unanimous judgment of Justice Eko of the Court of Appeal, Abuja, which held that “the primary of the PDP held on the 7th and 8th January through which Dan Bassey Abia emerged as the party’s candidate for the April elections is hereby upheld as it was the primary that was monitored by the Independent National Electoral Commission and annexed in the suit".

 

“The trial judge erred by saying that the name of Abia be removed and replaced with that of Eyibo. The party primary is the exclusive right of a political party as the party determines who its candidate in an election should be".
