Court Declines to Bar Obaseki From Participating in PDP Primaries

A Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has refused to bar Godwin Obaseki, the Edo State Governor, from participating in the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) primary election scheduled for Thursday.

The suit was instituted by one of the governorship aspirants of the PDP, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, who had vowed not to step down for Obaseki after the PDP granted him a waiver to contest the primaries.

Ogbeide-Ihama said Obaseki recently joined the party and only those who purchased the forms during the stipulated window should be allowed to participate in the primary election.

Just like Obaseki’s former party, the APC, Ogbeide-Ihama also questioned his educational credentials. Ogbeide-Ihama also prayed that the primaries be put on hold pending when the court would hear the motion on notice.

But the judge, E. A Obile did not grant that prayer. The judge asked that the motion seeking to bar Obaseki be served on the defendants including Obaseki via newspaper publication.

More to come…
