With less than six days to the National Assembly election, a concerned constituent in Isoko Federal constituency, Peter Enaruke, has approached a Federal High Court, Abuja, seeking the disqualification of the Minority Leader of the House of Representatives, Leo Ogor, over alleged forgery of the certificates he presented to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
Ogor, who represents Isoko Federal Constituency, is seeking re-election on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
The plaintiff in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/10/2019 joined the PDP as the first defendant, INEC as the second defendant while Ogor is the third defendant.
The plaintiff claimed that the dates of working experience filed in the 2018 INEC form C.F. 001 and the educational qualification with dates in the 2014 INEC form C.F. 001 and certificates submitted by the third defendant for the 2019 general elections were false information and forged certificates.
The plaintiff is seeking among other relief, an order setting aside or nullifying the nomination of Ogor as the candidate of the PDP.
