Court upholds Oduah’s election for Anambra North

11 May 2016, 20:29

Abuja -  A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has upheld the election of Stella Oduah, former Aviation Minister, as the senator representing Anambra North senatorial district.

The court in its ruling on Wednesday held that the Electoral Act and the Constitution are categorical and unambiguous to the effect that a primary election is a primary affair of a political party and should not be enquired into by any court of law.

Justice Adeniyi Ademola in his ruling said that since the law is emphatic that no court should inquire into any primary election of a political party, any attempt to attempt that will amount to futility.

The suit was instituted by Magarene Chuba-Okadigbo challenging the primary election that saw Oduah as a candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2015 general elections.

Okadigbo had claimed that she scored the highest number of votes at the primary election, and therefore should be declared the candidate of the party for the 2015 general election.
