Victory Of Omo-Agege Canceled As Court Cancels Jones Eru’s Faction Of APC Executives

The Federal High Court sitting in Asaba, the Delta State capital, has sacked the state executive committee of the All Progressive Congress (APC) led by Mr Jones Erue as chairman.

The court presided over by Justice T.B. Adegoke, held that Mr Cyril Ogodo is the authentic chairman of the party in the state.

The court also held that the ward and local government executives of the APC under the Erue-led state executive is null and void.

It further held that all actions purportedly taken by Erue as state chairman are also null and void, just as it canceled the emergence of candidates for the 2019 general elections from the primaries conducted by Erue-led executive.

The result of this is that the re-election of Senator Ovie Omo-Agege has been affected by the judgment as he emerged from the primary conducted by Erue-led executive.

Other candidates affected by the judgment include the state governorship candidate, Great Ogboru, the senatorial candidate for Delta South senatorial district and immediate past governor of the state, Dr Emmanuel Uduaghan, among others.

Meanwhile, in another development, Naija News reports that the Independent National Electoral Commission has put aside plans for a supplementary governorship /state assembly elections in the state.
