Anambra: Soludo files objection against nomination

By Ikechukwu Nnochiri

ABUJA—The embattled former Central Bank Governor and gubernatorial candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the 2010 governorship election in Anambra State, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo, yesterday, approached the Abuja division of the Appeal Court, with a preliminary objection, seeking to void a subsisting appeal filed against his nomination by four aggrieved gubernatorial aspirants of the party, for the February 6 elections in the state.

The four appellants who were dissatisfied with the decision of trial Justice Danlami Senchi, who on November 15, struck out their suit challenging the legality of the process adopted by the PDP, in choosing Soludo as its candidate for the said election, had gone on appeal, with a view to reversing that Judgment.

They are contending that the Judge erred in law by declining jurisdiction to entertain the matter they said bothered on an alleged breach of both the 1999 constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, the Electoral Act of 2006 and Article 17 of the PDP electoral guidelines.
