The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has finally withdrawn the certificate of return issued to Peter Nwaoboshi
Nwaoboshi was sacked as the senator-elect by Federal High Court, Abuja due to irregularities on PDP primaries. INEC has eventually withdrawn the certificate of return it earlier gave Peter Nwaoboshi and issued it Ned Nwoko as the authentic senator-elect for Delta North senatorial district.
Acting on the earlier court judgment of Federal High Court Abuja that sacked Nwaoboshi for not being the winner of the PDP primary in the Delta region, INEC on Friday, May 10, gave Ned Nwoko the certificate.
The electoral umpire, through its director of legal services, Oluwatoyin Babalola, issued the certificate at its headquarters in Abuja amid wild jubilation by well-wishers and family members of the senator-elect
However, E247mag had earlier reported that the Federal High Court Abuja on Wednesday, April 4 sacked Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, the senator-elect for Delta North senatorial district.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed gave the order while delivering judgment in a suit filed by Ned Nwoko challenging the election of Nwaoboshi as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the October 2, 2018 primaries of the party held in Delta.
