The Federal High Court Abuja on Wednesday sacked Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, the senator-elect for Delta North Senatorial District.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed gave the order while delivering judgment in a suit filed by Mr. Ned Nwoko challenging the election of Nwaoboshi as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in the October 2, 2018 primaries of the party held in Delta.
The court held that Nwaoboshi, a serving senator, was not the duly elected candidate of the PDP in the primary election.
Justice Mohammed ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission to publish the name of Nwoko as PDP candidate, having established before the court that he scored the highest number of votes in the said primary election.
The court also barred Nwaoboshi from parading himself as the candidate of the PDP for the senatorial zone.
