BREAKING: Andy Uba & Stella Odua - Supreme Court Okays Their Stay In The Senate
The Supreme Court, earlier today dismissed the case filed by the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, seeking clarification on whether to withdraw the certificate of return issued to Senators Oduah, Andy Uba and other federal lawmakers of the PDP representing Anambra State.
According to the apex court ruling read by Hon. Justice J.N Okoro, he said, “The court shall not review any judgement given by it, as stated in the court rules.
“The judgement of this Court is final as reflected in the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended. On the whole I hold the view that this court has no jurisdiction to entertain this motion from INEC, this matter is hereby stuck out.
The court maintained that issues of primaries were not the case presented before it but issues regarding the leadership of the Anambra State PDP chapter.
