The Supreme Court today Tuesday, 16th July, dismissed the suits filed by Ned Nwoko, challenging the election of Sen. Peter Nwaoboshi as the Peoples Democratic Party candidate representing Delta North district in the October 2, 2018, party primaries held in the state.
Justice Inyang Okoro led the five-man panel of justices whose decision was to dismiss the suit for lack of jurisdiction.
The Federal High Court in Abuja had on Thursday, April 3, 2019, declared Ned Nwoko 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 Peoples Democratic Party for Delta North Senatorial seat.
Nwoko proceeded to the Supreme Court to challenge the decision of the Appeal Court.
