Recall that the last week of May 2019 was a dedicated period of celebration for Regina Daniels and Ned Nwoko. The love birds started with induction of the young actress into womanhood, a follow up with Children’s day carnival that brought Nigerian Entertainers from different states to shake up Delta State, a Traditional marriage and finally a dinner where the couple hosted entertainers and their special guests.
However, If Ned Nowko was planning a honeymoon, it might be postponed for legal battle as Court Of Appeal withdrew the Certificate of Return it issued to the billionare in a judgement held today.
The Court of Appeal in Abuja reversed the April 3, 2019 judgment of the Federal High Court, Abuja which sacked Senator Peter Nwaoboshi as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Delta North Senatorial seat.
Justice Mohammed Idris, in the lead judgment, held that the suit by Nwoko was statute barred and that Justice Ahmed Mohammed of the Federal High Court, Abuja ought not to have heard the case and gave the judgment he gave in favor of Nwoko.
The three-man panel of the Court of Appeal, in a unanimous judgment on Thursday, held that the Federal High Court had no jurisdiction to have heard the case filed by Ned Nwoko.
Justice Mohammed had, in the April 3, 209 judgment, sacked Nwaoboshi as the PDP candidate for the last election in Delta North Senatorial district and among others, ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to accept Nwoko as the party’s candidate.
