Senator Stella Odua Reacts To Her Victory At The Supreme Court Today
Stell Oduah, the Senator representing Anambra North, has expressed gratitude to God, Nigerians and her supporters all over the country following her victory in the Supreme Court today.
In a statement signed by her Press Secretary, Cynthia Ferdinand, Oduah disclosed this after listening to the Apex Court's rulinng that restated that the elections that brought her and other Anambra State federal lawmakers from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, into the National Assembly remains valid, as the issue was not even part of the judgement INEC was seeking clarification about.
She described her victory as a victory for democracy and the Nigerians at large while congratulating her colleagues.
“I’m delighted that the Supreme Court has clearly stated that the issue of primaries was not included in the appeal that came before.
“Supreme Court had ruled severally that only National Executive of a party can submit list to INEC.
“I want to thank Nigerians and everyone who has expressed support for me. I must say that this is a victory for democracy and Nigerians at large. The Judiciary without fear of favour or prejudice has allowed justice to be served.
“In the spirit of service I will continue to serve the good people of Anambra North and the nation at large by making deliberations that will move our nation forward,” Oduah said.
