Odengene Vs Edeoga: Appeal Court Yet To Decide On Enugu Labour Guber Primary

By NewsBits

The tussle for the Enugu Labour Party gubernatorial primary is still subsisting at the Appeal Court as observers continue to keep vigil awaiting judgement.

While the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, is having sleepless nights over the matter filed by ADC seeking to disqualify all their candidates over alleged irregularities in the conduct of the primary elections, the Labour awaits the appeal Court ruling on the matter.

A report on Friday by a section of the social media celebrated an appeal Court ruling in another matter entirely as though the matter was decided shows exactly the apprehension surrounding the Labour Party situation in Enugu State.

The true position.

Capt Evarest Nnaji, Odengene, sued Labour Party at the Federal High Court over the ggovernorship primary election. The court ordered the labour party to repeat the primary elections for Enugu. Dissatisfied with the judgment, Labour party appealed to the court of appeal.

Chijioke Edeoga, who was not a party to the case before the Federal High Court got a lawyer Maduabuchi Oba to file an application for leave to join the appeal as an interested party.

While the lawyer was preparing his documents for the joinder application, the court of appeal heard the main appeal by labour party and adjourned for judgment. The application for joinder now came up Friday and the court of appeal, since it had already heard the main appeal, said it has been overtaken by events and struck it out. The main appeal filed by Labour Party is still awaiting judgment.
