Premium Times reports
The Supreme Court, in its ruling, also re-affirmed the chairmanship of Ejike Oguebego as the authentic State Chairman of the PDP in Anambra State, declaring the list of candidates for various elective positions submitted by the other faction illegal.

By the unanimous verdict, the list of candidates nominated by Oguebego-led executive was the only one to be recognized by the INEC.

Ubah and Oduah will be replaced by Chris Ubah (Anambra South) and Annie Okonkwo (Anambra Central) respectively.

Go and read up Madam Cindy. Dont choke on your bile please, if its the word “hero” that is giving you heart attack, egbon come up with your own title for Buhari

      No no no Mrs glory. Not everyone who is not in support of your hero is a buhari asslicker. But well, it is not like your type are deep thinkers. Anambra as always had factions blah blah blah. Even a kid can see through this BS. Selective memory is what is worrying you.

PDP anambra had this coming! remember when Ngige was kidnapped, was Jonathan president? when Andy Uba was sacked from being governor so this almighty GEJ, Lord of all things bad couldn’t have influences the court abi to install uba? oh and when the PDP candidate Tony Nwoye lost the gubernatorial election under GEJ……
      Aunty can u not see that it’s your own memory that is short? stop reading Sahara and it’s propaganda, read up sweetie, Nigeria and politics existed before GEJ…..

    Going by this ruling, the 3 Ubah brothers can be called Senator…Brothers toh bad.

      Very true. The eldest of the 3, Ugochukwu set the pace.

      Ifeanyi Uba(Capital Oil CEO) is not their brother. Andy and Chris are the main Uba.

    • Anon

      January 30, 2016 at 10:31 pm

      Read again. Who mentioned Ifeanyi? When was Ifeanyi ever a Senator?

      The three brothers are Senator Ugochukwu, Chris and Andy. These ones have the surname Uba. The other one is Ubah. Even you don’t know how to spell the name of the person you are defending.

      Reading is essential!

    Hey Cindy, from my understanding of Anambra PDP, they were divided during that period, hence the elected group were of an illegal fraction. Having said that, this Ubah thing is really umunna meeting, lol.

    Glory N, what is false about the Sahara Reporters’ headline? The document of the Supreme Court ruling is publicly available for all to read. And what’s in it is exactly what SR is reporting. Me too I’m from Anambra State. Does that mean I can’t comment on what is happening in other states? Am I confined to the borders of Anambra state? What happened to being Nigerian??? And what does Buhari have to do with the Supreme Court sorting out an internal fracas in a state chapter of the PDP? He wasn’t even president when the in-fighting went down.

      Sahara had a headline saying the supreme Court had removed the senators that were allegedly imposed by GEJ and his wife. this is a huge lie and I said I was from Anambra because I know PDP’s issues in the state run deeper than that and were there long before GEJ became president. i never said you have to be from Anambra to comment. pls you can comment, I’m just unhappy that people are peddling falsehood. it is every citizen’s duty to call out lies where they can so that innocent people don’t draw conclusions based on propaganda. GEJ was not perfect and made a lot of mistakes but this one should not be pinned on him. Anambra PDP deserves this as they have been disunited for very long.

      Well, thank you for your clarification, but the Supreme Court judgement effectively removes them. Today or tomorrow, they must pack out. What remains to be said is that, most certainly, it is neither far-fetched nor a huge lie to assert that GEJ and his wife Patience intefered in Anambra politics. Mama Peace (what an ironic name) has a well-known record of interfering in state and local politics.. He did exactly NOTHING when Oduah was exposed for financial fraud, leading the citizenry to–rightfully–believe that she may have been a proxy for him. From Dasukigate, one doesn’t have to be a rocket scientist to deduce that GEJ used proxies to run errands for his personal political interests.

    Wondering how this Stella Oduah that does jot pay her staffs salary made it to the senate, am just shocked. No one in your office earns even beyond this 50000, although some are still on 30000/ month and you never pay salaries as and when due. This woman owed her staffs like six months salary last year and when she eventually paid,she sacked more than half, people that had been there for 5 to 10 years were laid off without a dime. No terminal benefits, no health care, yet she owes from 3 months to 6 months hut the government
    Pays you. your romance with Jonathan is over, at least we can go back to Oduah gate and investigate you.

    All the fake companies you open to use and buy half the lands in Abuja is coming to hurt you, watch out. When you appear in the paper , you are so beautiful but wickedness has not allowed any of your staffs to progress. The hand of the law is coming, get ready
