Appeal Court Sacks Odey As senator For C’River North

By Our Correspondent


The Court of Appeal Friday morning in Calabar has declared Jarigbe Agom Jarigbe as the duly elected senator for the Cross River North senatorial district.

With this Stephen Odey is sacked as senator representing the senatorial district.

The court said he is the lawful candidate of the People’s Democratic Party in the December 5th, 2020 bye-election for the seat.

The three-man panel headed by Hon. Justice Chioma I. Nwosu also invalidated the certificate of return earlier issued to Steven Odey by the Independent National Electoral Commission INEC and directed that it be withdrawn.
