2023: Court Dismisses Suit Challenging Stella Oduah’s Candidacy

Written by on November 23, 2022

A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a suit filed against Senator Stella Oduah, seeking an order invalidating her nomination as a Senatorial Candidate for the Peoples Democratic Party in Anambra State.

Delivering Judgement, Justice Inyang Ekwo dismissed the suit for being status barred.

A senatorial aspirant in Anambra, Mr John Emeka, had sued Oduah, alleging that she lied under oath in both her expression of interest and nomination forms, including in the INEC Form CF001 which she submitted to the commission for the 2023 Anambra North Senatorial District seat.

He further prayed the court to declare that by reason of the false information given in her INEC Form CF 001 in respect of her participation in the NYSC Scheme, she was not qualified to have contested in the said elections and or any other election into the Nigerian Senate.
