A Federal High Court in Calabar has sacked Senator John Owan Enoh as the governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in Cross River State.
According to Channels Television, Justice Simon Amobeda issued an order that Usani Usani should be recognised by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) as governorship candidate of the APC in the state.
Justice Amobeda also dissolved the John Ochalla-led executive committee of the party and named Godwin Etim John as the bonafide leader of the party in Cross-River.
Speaking to newsmen after the judgement, Etim John said “I am very satisfied with the court ruling. I am not surprised with the judgment because there is no way from my layman’s understanding of law that you will disobey court injunction, ruling or judgement and expect you can go anywhere and get a contrary judgment.
“From day one I was victorious in my congresses and God is proving it day by day and court to court, that whatever was done was right, people are just trying to cheat us but God and the law of the land is on our side.”
The governorship election is slated to hold on Saturday, March 2, 2019.
