Delivering Judgement, the Presiding Judge, Hamma Barka held that the Federal High Court had no jurisdiction to have entertained the case because the plaintiff, Nduka Edede, lacked the right to have filed the suit.

Recalled, Section 84(12) of the Electoral Act provides that, No Political Appointee shall be a voting delegate or be voted for at the convention or congress of any Political Party
