An FCT High Court Abuja has just issued an order mandating INEC not to publish the name of anyone as the candidate of PDP for November 6 Anambra state governorship election.
This order came as a shock to the camp of Val Ozigbo after it was reported yesterday that the restraining order from the state high court Awka which had earlier stopped the publication of Ozigbo as the candidate of PDP was not renewed by Justice Obiorah Nwabunike after it elapsed.
There is a serious tension in the camp of Valentine Chineto Ozigbo the factional candidate of PDP for the November 6 Anambra state governorship election, because it was Ozigbo who went to court seeking an order to compel INEC not to tamper with his name which was already submitted to INEC on June 2nd by PDP.
Ozigbo also asked the court to grant an order that INEC should publish his name and not that of any other candidate. And that PDP should not tamper with name which was submitted to INEC on June 2nd.
But the court turned against him and rather refused to grant his main reliefs and went ahead to block INEC from publishing the name of any candidate of PDP pending the hearing and determination of the motion on notice.
Below is the court order.
