Following Supreme Court ruling that reaffirmed the Anambra State Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, chairmanship of Chief Ejike Oguebego as the authentic executive, some aggrieved candidates that participated in the primary election have called on the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to withdraw the certificates of return of all those in the National Assembly from Anambra, who participated in the primaries that the Supreme Court had declared illegal.
Speaking to journalists in Abuja yesterday, the leader of the aggrieved group, Hon. Tony Offiah from Aguata federal constituency said it had become necessary for INEC to issue forthwith certificate of return to all the persons that emanated in the Ejike Oguebego-led executive committee primaries as ordered by the Supreme Court.
He further advised INEC to “critically look into the conduct of the INEC consortium that are paid with tax payers public fund that runs into hundreds of millions of naira, specifically Chief Awomolo, SAN, and Dr Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN.”
He therefore warned that within seven days from then that Dr. Ikpeazu should be disqualified from further participation in the matter as he clearly had conflict.
“After the expiration of the seven days ultimatum, if Dr Onyechi Ikpeazu, SAN, fails or refuses to disqualify himself from this mater, we will take up the matter with INEC.
“We urge INEC to discountenance and jettison all opinions from the consortium composed of these two biased men and the INEC as an umpire cannot be seen to be taking sides but must at all times apply strict adherence to law.
“We will be forwarding a more detailed petition against these two members of INEC and privileged committee too,” he said.
The persons affected by the decision of the Supreme Court included the senator representing Anambra North senatorial district, Stella Oduah, and her counterpart representing Anambra, Andy Ubah.
Also affected are members of the House of Representatives elected on the ticket of the PDP.
