A Federal High Court sitting in Calabar has sacked John Owan-Enoh as the APC Governorship candidate in the state.
John Ochallah, a factional Chairman of the APC in Cross River has also been sacked by the court.
The court has in addition sacked ALL APC candidates listed by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Justice Simon Amobeda ruled on Monday, February 11th and said; ”INEC should only receive and accept the names and candidates for the 2019 elections that emerged from the lawful executive led by Godwin Etim John”. He ordered that Usani Usani, be recognised as the legitimate candidate of the party.
Counsel to the other faction of the APC, Ayei Okpa said; “Once a judgment is delivered in a court of law, everyone affected by that judgment is supposed and ought to comply with the said judgment and that is what this court today, has confirmed”.
“INEC has every reason to comply with that order, what INEC did by publishing unlawful names is unlawful,” he said.
