Okadigbo’s wife, Ewuga triumph at Supreme Court,Eyibo loses out

Lady Margery  Chuba Okadigbo, wife of late Senate President, Chuba Okadigbo has been been declared the  authentic candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in the last senatorial election in Anambra North  district.

But it is not yet  over for Mrs Okadigbo as the apex court did not order that she should be sworn.Justice Chukwuma Eneh who led the panel of apex court justices stopped short of giving that order because it was not part of  her prayers before the court.Her lawyers are  now required to make fresh moves toward a relief seeking her to be sworn in.But today’s ruling is a major for her.

Also, the opposition Congress for Progressive Change ,CPC Senator Yusuf  Nagogo  lost   the Nassarawa North Senatorial Seat to CPC’s Solomon Ewuga,who has also served as minister of  state FCT.

In a related development the gale of Supreme court rulings today  also hit the House of Representatives as  Bassey Dan Abia (PDP) was declared  winner of the Eket/Esit/Ibeno/Onna Federal Constituency seat,thus bringing to an end the tenure of Eseme Eyibo  also of the PDP.
