Court Order Threatens Deputy Senate President’s Seat




The testimony of a witness called by the All Progressive Congress (APC), in the ongoing National Assembly election tribunal sitting in Asaba is threatening the seat of the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege.

The witness, Adehor Ochuko Albert, posited that there was a court order and judgment restraining APC from submitting names of candidates to Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for the 2019 general elections.

In 2018 an order by Justice Toyin Adegoke of the Federal High Court, Asaba, Delta State had restrained APC in the state from submitting the list of candidates to INEC.


However, the Prophet Jones Erue’s faction of the APC submitted a list of candidates to INEC on October 18, 2018.


A petition filed by Oboro Evelyn Omavowan, and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) is seeking to quash the election of Omo-Agege based on the flagrant abuse and disregard of the court order.


According to the suit, Omo-Agege wasn’t qualified to contest the election, as the order by Justice Adegoke was contravened.


In a petition filed by Oboro Evelyn Omavowan, and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) at the election tribunal, APC was sued as the third respondent, while INEC and Omo-Agege Ovie Augustine were sued as first and second respondents, respectively.
