The Jones Erue faction of the All Progressives Congress (APC) has suffered a big blow as the Court of appeal sitting in Benin City, the Edo state capital on Friday, March 29, upheld the nullification of the re-election of Ovie Omo-Agege, the senator representing Delta central district, Channels TV reports.
Recall that Justice Tosin Adegoke had on March 18 sacked the Great Ogboru/Ovie Omo-Agege factional state executive committee of the APC led by Jones Erue and upheld the O’tega Emerhor faction led by Cyril Ogodo as the authentic state executive committee.
And in reaction, Omo-Agege had approached the court of appeal to seek the leave of the court to appeal the judgment nullifying their candidatures and re-election.
But in its judgement, the court of appeal dismissed their applications, saying it lacked merit.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that stakeholders of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ndokwa nation of Delta have lent their support to the party’s choice of Sen. Ahmad Lawan or the top job of the president of the Senate.
The group made its position on the contentious issue known in a statement signed by its Coordinator, Chief Paul Odili, and issued to newsmen at the end of the its meeting on in Asaba.
The group also urged the national leadership of the party to endorse Sen. Ovie Omo-Agege for the position of the Deputy Senate president.
