By suggestion, the Supreme Court decided that Senators Stella Oduah and Andy Uba, and other PDP administrators in Anambra State are to hold their seats.

It said in spite of the fact that it maintained the judgment of the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt, such that the Ejike Oguebego-drove Executive Committee of the Anambra PDP was the valid body to run the gathering’s issues, it didn’t say the Oguebego Exco could accept the obligations of the gathering’s National Executive Committee (NEC).

Equity John Okoro, who read the lead decision of a five-man seat, said the Supreme Court neither requested the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to acknowledge the rundown of possibility for the National Assembly from the Oguebego-lead Exco nor did it direct INEC to direct crisp races into the National Assembly in the state.

Where in the judgment did we express that the Oguebego-drove board of trustees ought to assume control over the elements of the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the PDP with the goal that it can submit rundown to INEC? I think guidance are not reasonable to this court when they say they don’t comprehend the judgment of this court, which was composed in straightforward English dialect.

“Might I reprove counsel, both senior and junior, that over the span of their employment, they have an obligation to this court. As much as they owe an obligation to their customers, they additionally owe an obligation to people in general not to deceive them. All in all, I hold the perspective this court did not have the ward to hear this movement that was recorded on the February 8, 2016. It is therefore struck out,” Justice Okoro said in his lead administering.

Different individuals from the board, including Justices Sylvester Ngwuta, Mary Peter-Odili, Datijo Muhammad, and Kumai Akaa’hs concurred with Justice Okoro’s thinking
