Court of Appeal sacks Regina Daniels’ husband as senator-elect
The Court of Appeal in Abuja has reversed the April 3, 2019, judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja, which sacked Senator Peter Nwaoboshi as the candidate of PDP for Delta North Senatorial seat.
Justice Mohammed Idris, in the lead judgment, held that the suit by actress Regina Daniels’ husband, Ned Nwoko, was statute barred and that Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High Court, Abuja ought not to have heard the case and gave the judgment he gave in favor of Nwoko.
The three-man panel of the Court of Appeal, in a unanimous judgment on Thursday, held that the Federal High Court had no jurisdiction to have heard the case filed by Ned Nwoko.
Justice Mohammed, had, in the April 3, 209 judgment, sacked Nwaoboshi as the PDP candidate for the last election in Delta North Senatorial district and among others, ordered INEC to accept Nwoko as the party’s candidate.
