Today, the 30th of May, 2019, an Appeal Court in Abuja set aside the judgement of the Federal High Court which declared Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko winner of the Delta North Senatorial District primary election
It will be recalled that the Federal High Court Abuja on April 3rd 2019, had restored Prince Nwoko’s primary election mandate to him.
In the celebrated judgement, the presiding Judge, A.R. Mohammed had ruled in favour of Hon. Nwoko with a clear declaration that Senator Peter Nwaoboshi was not validly nominated as the PDP senatorial candidate for Delta North.
This prompted the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC to issue a Certificate of Return to Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko as the authentic winner of the election.
The Federal High Court judgement and the Certificate of Return had since elicited widespread public acclamation as Prince Ned Nwoko was generally believed to have won the election.
Sequel to this, Hon. Prince Ned Nwoko is poised to challenge the Appeal Court judgement at the Supreme Court.
It is a relentless resolve to reclaim an electoral mandate freely given to Prince Ned Nwoko by the people of Delta North who hold so much love and admiration for him as a good son enamoured with the growth and development of Anioma land.
