RIVERS PDP REPS PRIMARY ELECTION MAY NOT HOLD, AS OGONI YOUTH PRESIDENT VOWS TO RESIST DISQUALIFICATION

The primary election of Rivers State People's Democratic Party (PDP)'s House of Representatives position for Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency may not hold as planned, unless the name of one of the aspirants, contesting that position is cleared.

This is just as the President General of Ogoni Youth Federation and House of Representatives aspirant for Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency, LEGBORSI YAMAABANA has vowed to resist his disqualification by the screening committee of the party in Port Harcourt.

In a chat with newsmen in Port Harcourt on Friday, the youth activist, LIGBORSI YAMAABANA regretted that, ten days after the appeal panel heard his appeal, the report of the appeal panel was yet to be made public.

He said it became even more worrisome that the primary for the House of Representatives is slated for 20th of this month of May, just six days away to the date, yet he did not know his fate.

He appealed to the panel and the National Leadership of the PDP to clear him and release the  report in his favour, noting that he provided every needed document correctly and wondered why he was disqualified.

He decried the delay in releasing the report of the appeal panel and suspected a fowl play.

He vowed to resist any attempt to disenfranchise him in the forthcoming primary of the PDP for the position of House of Reps for Khana/Gokana Federal Constituency by 20th of this month.

LEGBORSI YAMAABANA threatened to deploy all available legal options to ensure he would contest the election next week.

This comes 10 years after a Federal High Court ordered the company to pay the compensation. Reports comes that it will be paid to the Ogonis through their lawyer, Chief Lucius Nwosu.

Multinational oil company, Shell Petroleum Company, has agreed to pay N45.9billion to the Ogoni people of Rivers State for the losses they had suffered from oil spillage that ravaged their communities.
Shell Petroleum Company through its lawyer, Chief A. O Ejelamo, a Senior Advocate of Nigeria, announced the decision to pay up the money while addressing Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed of the Federal High Court, Abuja, on Wednesday.

The senior lawyer sought the order of Justice Mohammed to permit payment of the debt through the Chief Registrar of the court in a bank account to be opened for the purpose.

The final decision to pay up the money was endorsed by Justice Ahmed Ramat Mohammed of the Federal High Court, Abuja.

Although the oil company had sought to pay through the Chief Registrar of the court, it was eventually agreed that the amount be paid to the aggrieved people through their lawyer.

The amount was awarded in favour of Ogoni people by Justice Ibrahim Buba of the Lagos division of the Federal High court on June 14, 2010 in his judgment in a suit filed by the Ogoni people.

However, the Ogonis waived the interest on the principal amount as concession agreed upon during reconciliation.
