‘Supreme Court did not sack me’ – Stella Oduah

Anambra Senator, Stella Oduah, has denied reports that the Supreme Court sacked her from her position at the National Assembly.

It was reported on Friday, that the Supreme Court had sacked two Senators from Anambra State, Oduah and Andy Uba.

However, in an interview with Channels Television, Oduah denied the Supreme Court ‘in all its entirety’ while describing the reports as ‘false’.

“I have gone through the court judgment and the judge clearly did not give any judgement to that effect.

“Indeed, what the judgment and the case is all about is state exco and as we all know, state exco do not do election, neither do they submit list.

“So the issue of emergence of candidate, and the issue of candidates that won election was not the issue of this particular case,” she said.

Oduah also added that there is a another case for which the Supreme Court has given a similar judgment but they were not related.

“The Judge was very clear on its judgment and it clearly says its not about who emerges or the election but about the legality of the excos,” she said.

Oduah said that she was initially baffled when the news of her supposed sacking reached her.

“I was shocked because I knew we went through the right process and its only national executive that submits list to INEC. So the judgment was not against us the candidates of PDP.”

Meanwhile, Cynthia Ferdinand, the Press Secretary to Senator Oduah, released a statement on Friday, stressing that: “‎The Supreme Court did not order the withdrawal of the Certificates of Return issued by the Commission to our clients. They did not hold that the faction of the PDP had the right to sponsor candidates for the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).”

“They did not equally authorize the Commission to substitute our clients with the individuals whose names were on the list improperly allowed by the Commission in obvious disregard of the series of judgments of the Supreme Court of Nigeria to the effect that it is only the National Executive of the party that has the vires to sponsor candidates.”
