Tribunal Sacks LP's Ngozi Okolie, Returns PDP's Ndudi Elumelu by nairalandkachy1: 3:03pm On Jul 24, 2023
The National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Asaba, Delta State, has nullified the election of Mr. Ngozi Okolie of the Labour Party as member representing Aniocha/Oshimili Constituency at the House of Representatives.

The tribunal in a judgement on Monday, held that Okolie was not duly sponsored by the Labour Party as he was not a member of the party as at May 28, 2022 when the primary purportedly held.

The tribunal declared the runner up in the February 25, 2023 National Assembly, Ndudi Elumelu of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), as winner.

Elumelu who is the immediate past Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, had filed his petition, praying the tribunal to disqualify Okolie who was declared winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Hmm
That's sad.
Why would this happen to LP?
Well, he will seek redress at higher court.
This is exactly how LP will crush APC at Presidential tribunal

Obi took part in the Labour party primary... if u like write all the English in the dictionary, Tinubu will be disqualified.
smh.

Mr Obi was not a member of LP as at the deadline time LP submitted its membership register to INEC. No court waved aside that fact for Obi as it's now clearly shown that what Obi did was an infraction on the Electoral law. Not even the court judgement Obidatti is using to confuse you waved it aside for Mr Obi or recognised him as a candidate beyond his name featuring on a list of candidates INEC published! Read the judgement of the AC that Mr Obi is clawing on as a straw :

The Appeal Court waved aside the argument by both Obi and the LP that the suit was statute barred.

The appellate court noted that whereas Obi resigned from the PDP on May 24, 2022, INEC published his name as candidate of the LP on September 20, 2022.

It further observed that following the publication of Obi’s name, the APM, being a registered political party that also has a candidate for the presidential election, filed its suit on September 30, 2022.

The court held that since the suit was filed exactly 11 days after Obi’s name was published by INEC, it was not caught by the 14 days limitation stipulated in Section 285 (9) of the 1999 Constitution, as amended, and therefore not statute barred.

However, it held that Sections 29 (5), 84(14) and 142 of the Electoral Act, as well as Section 285(14) of the Constitution, clearly defined a person that could lodge a pre-election case to disqualify a candidate in an election.

The appellate court stressed that under section 157 of the Electoral Act, only an aspirant could challenge the nomination of a candidate to INEC.

It held that APM did not qualify as an aspirant, adding that the duty of INEC was to publish names submitted to it by political parties.

The court held that by INEC publishing Obi’s name, “it has done no more than comply with provisions of the Electoral Act”.

More so, the appellate court held that though the APM alleged that Obi’s name was not on the register the LP submitted to INEC, it failed to tender the said register in evidence.

Now, every candidate and LP aspirant challenging LP mandate 'place holder' in court is presenting the LP register in every court. Even the few seats LP got from the illegality will be lost. PDP and APC will gain more seats following this judgement.

LP register is now hot cake. Trust Mr Arabambi and co who are the real owners of LP to by now be mass producing it for anyone who needs it to prove their case in court and claim back the mandate illegally obtained by LP impostors a.k.a Mandate Thieves

The tribunal in a judgement on Monday, held that Okolie was not duly sponsored by the Labour Party as he was not a member of the party as at May 28, 2022 when the primary purportedly held.

Same ruling awaits Mr Obi.

These few days ahead of the PEPT judgement, the way and manner the back to back court judgements have been peeling away the LP illegalities and landing heavily to crush and destroy the evil unpatriotic house built with saliva from the lying tongues in LP and its mob is a forerunner of what awaits the lies-laden low budget petition of Mr Obi at the PEPT. Arabambi and Pa Apapa are vindicated. Even that our Igbo brother ,Chinedu of LP in Lagos, will receive his own reality check soon too.O ti zeh!

By now,INEC, APC, PDP and the Pa-Apapa faction should start demanding for damages from LP and their impostor candidates or press for their committal to prison for perjury, impersonation and electoral crimes. Check my signature for free stuffs!

Senators Victor Umeh and Tony Nwoye from Anambra are looking vulnerable with this judgement. Infact most of the Anambra national assembly members in LP are likely to meet the same fate.

Why are you blaming the lawyers/Judges?
Are you not aware that the same result awaits Obi?
Do the right thing, the judiciary can not be blackmailed nor will it be driven by emotions and sentiments.

The electoral law says, you have to become a member of a political party, 30 days before their primary.

How do you become a law maker , without knowing elementary aspect of the electoral law?

The law is clear enough

Judgment will be quashed by the Appeal Court.

No aspect of our law said new members cannot be registered after register has been submitted to INEC.

And no punishment was prescribed for anyone whose name is not in party register.

This recent decision by the tribunal to sack LP's Ngozi Okolie and reinstate PDP's Ndudi Elumelu raises questions about the transparency and fairness of the electoral process. It is not uncommon to witness such controversies surrounding elections, where the outcome is challenged and eventually overturned.

While some may argue that the decision reflects the judiciary's commitment to upholding the democratic principles and ensuring justice, others might view it as a political move meant to manipulate the composition of the House of Representatives.

It is crucial for the Nigerian electoral system to be impartial and independent to maintain public trust in the democratic process. It's essential to have rigorous scrutiny and evaluation of such decisions to prevent any perception of bias or favoritism.

Ultimately, this decision and similar cases prompt us to reflect on the need for comprehensive electoral reforms, reinforced institutions, and better laws to curtail manipulation and ensure a level playing field for all political parties.

Tribunal: How did you win?

Tribunal: Are you ok?

Peter girigory Obi: Tinubu committed crime in US.

Tribunal: prove it.

Peter girigory Obi: because he did score 25% in Abuja and Abuja voters and their votes are greater than all the 36 states of Nigeria.
