INEC issues Ned Nwoko Certificate of Return as Senator-elect for Delta North

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), has issued certificate of return to Prince Ned Nwoko, as the senator-elect.

Prince Nwoko, a billionaire politician, is to represent Delta north in the Red Chambers of the National Assembly.

He received the certificate of return from INEC amidst jubilation by hundreds of his supporters who thronged the INEC premises.

The ceremony was in line with an Abuja Federal High Court judgement which nullified the election of Senator Peter Nwaoboshi and declared Prince Ned Nwoko winner of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Delta North senatorial primary.

It would be recalled that in his judgement of April 3, 2019, the Presiding Judge, Justice A. R. Mohammed, had ruled that from all available evidence before the court, Prince Nwoko convincingly won the Delta North PDP senatorial primary election held on 2nd October, 2018.

By implication of the judgement and the INEC Certificate of Return, Ned Nwoko stands as Senator-elect for Delta North senatorial district.
