Suit Against Stella Oduah’s Candidacy Dismissed By Court

A lawsuit filed against Senator Stella Oduah attempting to void her Peoples Democratic Party nomination for the Anambra North Senatorial District was dismissed by an Abuja-based Federal High Court.

Justice Inyang Ekwo dismissed the lawsuit brought by John Emeka, a senatorial candidate for the PDP in the primaries on May 27, because to status barring.

Oduah, PDP, and INEC were named as defendants in a lawsuit filed by Emeka, who claimed that Oduah had lied under oath in her nomination and expression of interest documents.
The plaintiff also claimed that Oduah used the same information while swearing under oath to run for the PDP in the Anambra North Senatorial District in the 2015 and 2019 general elections.

Justice Ekwo had on October 13 fixed today for judgment on the matter.



In the originating summons marked: FHC/ABJ/CS/841/2022 dated and filed on June 8 by his lawyer, Mbanefo Ikwegbue, Emeka prayed the court to declare that the information supplied by Oduah in her INEC Form CF001, with respect to her participation in the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) scheme, was false.
According to him, the act contravenes Sections 12(1)(a)(b)(c) and 13(1)(a) of the NYSC Act.
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.
