The supreme Court sitting in Abuja, this morning, sacked the lawmaker representing Ovia South West Constituency in the Edo State House of Assembly, Hon. Sunday Aghedo.

It ordered Mr. Godwin Adenomo, a member of the All Progressive Congress, to be sworn in immediately.

Adenomo had dragged the APC and the Committee that conducted the party primaries to court over imposition of the sacked lawmaker as the winner of the party primaries to the State House of Assembly in 2014.

He said he won the primaries but was denied the party’s ticket which was given to his opponent.

A judgment of the High Court asked the APC to conduct a fresh primary for the position but Adenomo rejected the ruling and headed for the appellate court to get proper judgment.

Hon. Sunday Aghedo before his sack, was the chairman house committee on finance/ethics and privileges
