Hon. Francis Barthlomew Chima, often known as OmoBarca, is the People’s Democratic Party’s nominee for the House of Representatives in the Lagos State district of Ajeromi Ifelodun. Mrs. Emilia Ezeude, a candidate in the party’s primary election on May 23, has filed a lawsuit against him.
On June 20, Mrs. Ezeude petitioned a Federal High Court in Lagos to proclaim her the winner of the PDP primary for House of Representatives in the Ajeromi Ifelodun federal constituency. She claimed that the PDP’s electoral appeal committee had determined that she was Ajeromi Ifelodun’s legitimate candidate.
On August 9th, 2022, Justice T.G. Ringim carefully considered the situation before dismissing the case for lack of diligent prosecution. Throughout the court hearings, neither the claimant nor her attorney were present.
Based on this court’s decision, OmoBarca has successfully dismissed Mrs. Emilia Ezeude’s claim while other cases involving the PDP primary are still pending.
