 In an unexpected turn of events, the Abia State House of Assembly continues to recognize Destiny Nwagwu as the representative for Aba North State Constituency, despite the recent appeal court ruling that invalidated his candidacy.

Confirming the occurrence, Abia State House of Assembly Speaker, Mr. Emmanuel Ihuoma Emeruwa, stated that he led a delegation of state legislators to meet with Chief Innocent Ifediaso Chukwuma the CEO of Innoson Vehicles. The delegation included both the sacked Aba House of Assembly members and other members.

It is important to recall that in November 2023, the appellate court dismissed the candidacy of the Aba House member from the Labour Party. The court's decision was based on the fact that Hon. Destiny Nwagwu failed to provide sufficient evidence of his membership in the Labour Party prior to the election.

The statement made by the Abia Speaker has sparked questions regarding Hon. Nwagwu's current status as a member of the House of Assembly, in light of the court's ruling.

The statement reads in full, “Yesterday, I led a delegation from the Abia State House of Assembly to Chief Innocent Chukwuma, the CEO of Innoson Vehicles , at his residence in Nnewi, Anambra State.

“Our discussions centered on the ongoing manufacturing of special brand official vehicles for the 24 House of Assembly members of Abia State. We received assurances that these 24 official vehicles would be delivered to us by April 2024.

“The present Abia State Government remains committed to patronizing locally made products to stimulate the growth of the Naira. 

“We are proud of Innoson Vehicles’ contributions, and the members of the Abia State House of Assembly will be honored to use their products. And as a result of the patronage and unprecedented support from the Abia State government under Dr. Alex C. Otti , Innoson Vehicles has decided to establish a service plant in Abia State, in line with Governor Alex Otti’s request.

“Additionally, Innoson Vehicles also plans to use Aba as a hub for the conversion of vehicles to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG).

“This visit was strategic as it underscores the present Abia State House of Assembly’s commitment to patronize locally made products, which is essential for the growth of the Naira and the Nigerian economy at large, — Hon. Emmanuel Ihuoma Emeruwa (EIE), Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly.”
