No Court Can Nullify My Candidacy, Says Omo-Agege

WaffiTV:The All Progressives Congress Senator representing Delta Central Senatorial District, Ovie Omo-Agege, has said that the Federal High Court in Asaba did not invalidate his election as the Party’s representative for the National Assembly elections held as of late.

The senator told our journalist on Monday night that the court comes up short on the ability to invalidate his candidature since he was not involved with the suit.

He stated, “The judgment of the Federal High Court, Asaba is of no outcome on the grounds that to be perfectly honest, I am not involved with that case. It is a suit recorded by certain individuals who are professing to be the official of the gathering.

“The Party in the suit are the All Progressives Congress, the party director and Independent National Electoral Commission. My comprehension is that they are holding that it is their official in the express that ought to be perceived.

Inquired as to whether he will challenge the decision at the Appeal Court, Omo-Agege said that would not be vital on the grounds that he previously had an assent judgment that had approved the APC officials at wards and state levels in Delta.

He stated, “in all actuality before that (Asaba) judgement, we previously had a decision of a Federal High Court in Abuja, where an assent judgment was entered and which really approved the official from state to wards that created us.

“That assent judgment has not been put aside neither has it been bid against. The court that gave this decision in Asaba on Monday is a local court which has no redrafting controls over the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

“In the event that they need to set aside our appointment, that can just happen either through having that assent judgment or claim against it which has not been finished.

“Along these lines, we remain under the result of a substantial and subsisting judgment that still couldn’t seem to be put aside.

“In any occasion, I am not involved with that prosecution and the Supreme Court has made it extremely clear particularly on account of Okonta versus Phillips, that on the off chance that you are not a group in an activity, you can’t be bound by that choice.”
