Ned Nwoko Loses Case To Peter Nwaoboshi At Supreme Court     

The Supreme Court has dismissed Ned Nwoko’s suit in favour of Senator Peter Nwaboshi.

Billionaire businessman cum politician, Ned Nwoko, on Tuesday lost to Senator Peter Nwaoboshi, the Peoples Democratic Party candidate representing the Delta North district.

The five-man panel of justices headed by Justice Inyang Okoro of the Supreme Court struck out Nwoko’s application for lacking jurisdiction.

Recall that before the billionaire husband of the teenage Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels, went to the Supreme Court to challenge the Appeal Court ruling which reinstated Senator Nwaboshi as the winner of the election, the Federal High Court in Abuja had declared Ned Nwoko the true candidate of the PDP for the February 23 National Assembly election.

Nwoko, despite taking the case to the apex court, has finally lost the legal battle to Senator Nwaoboshi after the Supreme Court’s final verdict.
