Ebonyi PDP Governorship ticket: Obinna Ogba loses out at Supreme Court

Senator Obinna Ogba has lost the ticket to fly PDP’s flag in the 2023 governorship election in Ebonyi State.

The Supreme Court today ruled that Ifeanyi Odii is the rightful candidate.

In the lead judgement read by Justice Lawal Garba, the five- man panel headed by Justice Amina Augie noted that senator Ogba did not have the right of Appeal because he was not part of the suit when the matter came up at the trial court in Abakaliki, where Ogba’s candidature was upturned.

Ifeanyi Odii, was elected the party’s governorship ‘candidate’ during a canceled primary held between May 28th and 29th, 2022.

At a rescheduled primaries held on June 4th and 5th, 2022, Senator Ogba was declared winner, and Odii approached a Federal High Court sitting in Abakaliki which upturned Ogba’s candidature, necessitating Ogba to approach the Court of Appeal.

The Appellate court there after ruled in his favor, however, today’s judgment therefore annuls the Ogba’s candidature and makes Ifeanyi Odii, the authentic candidate of the PDP for the Ebonyi state governorship polls.
