Supreme Court upholds Nwaoboshi’s candidacy as Delta Senator


The Supreme Court has dismissed two suits filed by Ned Nwoko challenging the election of Peter Nwaoboshi as the authentic candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in Delta North Senatorial district.

Nwoko had argued that Nwaoboshi did not win the primary election conducted by the PDP in October 2, 2018, in Delta state.

But ruling on the matter, Justice Nyang Okoro dismissed the suit for lack of jurisdiction.

The Federal High Court in Abuja had on Thursday, April 3, 2019, declared Ned Nwokwo as the true candidate of the PDP for the February 23, 2019, National Assembly election.

However, the Court of Appeal in Abuja had reversed the April 3, 2019, judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which sacked Senator Nwaoboshi as the candidate of the PDP.

Nwoko proceeded to the Supreme Court to challenge the decision of the Appeal Court.

The appeal court has now ruled against him.
