Supreme Court: We Never Sacked Senators Oduah, Uba, Others



The Supreme Court came out clear yesterday saying it never sacked Senators Stella Oduah, Andy Uba and other lawmakers representing Anambra State for the PDP in its Judgment in the appeal brought by the Ejike Oguebego led executive committee.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had approached the apex court with a motion to interpret its January 29, 2016 Judgment.

“Where in our judgment did we write that the Ejike Oguebego led executive committee of the state chapter of the party should take over the functions of the National Executive of the party and forward the list to INEC” said Justice Okoro.
The Court ruled said the issues raised in the said motion were never part of its judgment they sought before the Court, It said the January 29 judgment was clear and without any ambiguity and therefore, it would be wrong to import different interpretations and meanings into it.

Justice Okoro supported by four of his colleagues said “ INEC is asking for a clarification as to whether it will be justified, having regard to the said decision of the Supreme Court in withdrawing the certificates of return issued to the candidates sponsored and nominated by the national executives of the PDP and in their place issuing Certificates of Return  to persons  who were in the list forwarded by the Anambra State chapter  of the PDP who were published as nominated candidates following  the orders of the learned trial judge of the subject matter of the appeal. This was not part of our Judgment”
