The presiding judge, ruled that Aidoko’s emergence as the flag bearer of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the party’s primaries was illegal.

The judge ruled he was wrongly presented as the party’s flagbrearer during the December 2014 primary election.

The judgement followed an application filled by Isaac Alfa, another contestant, seeking the nullification of the senator’s election.

Justice Kolawole ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to withdraw forthwith, the Certificate of Return issued to Senator Aidoko, also ordered the Clerk of the National Assembly to swear in AVM Alfa to replace the sacked lawmaker.
