High Court Sacks Cross River APC Candidates

Justice Simon Amobeda of the Federal High Court in Calabar, Cross River State, on Monday afternoon sacked the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Senator John Owan-Enoh, and other candidates of the party recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The court also sacked the leadership of the party led by Mr John Ochalla.

In a two-hour judgment, said, “INEC should only receive and accept the names and candidates that emerged from the executive led by Godwin John for the 2019 elections.”

Justice Amodeba also ordered that persons parading themselves as the executive members of the APC in Cross River State should forthwith cease and that the lawful executive of the APC in Cross River State was the one led by Godwin John.
