The presiding judge, Ahmed Mohammed, ruled on a suit filed by Ned Nwoko challenging the election of Nwaoboshi as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the October 2, 2018 primary of the party held in Delta.

The court gave an order that Nwaoboshi, a serving senator, was not the duly elected candidate of the PDP in the primary election.
