*says he remains Delta South APC Candidate
The embattled Candidate of the All Progressives Congress ((APC) in the Delta South Senatorial District, Dr. Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan on Monday reacted to a High Court judgment allegedly nullifying his candidature in the party’s primaries where he emerged as the candidate.
Dr. Uduaghan spoke in a statement signed by his Media Assistant, and made available to AUTHENTIC News Daily.
The former Delta State Governor said he remains the APC Candidate for the Delta South Senatorial District in the forthcoming elections.
Part of the statement reads thus,”We wish to clarify that His Excellency, Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan, was never aware of the case nor was he a party to the case and was never joined in the alleged suit.
“The Court had no time ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to remove the name of Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan from the list of candidates in the election.
“Dr. Emmanuel Eweta Uduaghan has instructed his lawyers to take necessary legal steps on the matter, even as he enjoins APC party faithful and supporters to come out en mass to vote the party and all its candidates to victory in the elections.
“We wish to state categorically that His Excellency, Dr. Uduaghan remains the candidate of the APC for Delta South and we are confident of winning the election.”
