A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has reserved July 8 for judgment in a suit challenging the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary election that produced Senators Andy Uba, Stella Oduah and others as candidates for the 2015 National Assembly elections.
Justice Adeniyi Ademola of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday fixed the date after listening to submissions of counsel in the matter.
Both the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, and the PDP had in the various arguments urged the court to dismiss the suit challenging the validity of the primary election of PDP that produced Senators Andy Ubah, Stella Oduah and others as candidates for the 2015 National Assembly elections.
According to them, the legal action instituted by Senator Annie Okonkwo and 43 others is a gross abuse of the court processes as the issues raised by the plaintiffs had already been resolved by the Supreme Court.
The plaintiffs had in their suit asked the court to invalidate the nomination of the defendants by the PDP in the 2015 National and State House of Assembly elections.
