Court Restrains Obaseki From Participating In PDP Primaries

…Fixes Hearing For Wednesday, June 24

There seems to be no lead way for the embattled Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki, as a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt restraints him from participating in governorship primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scheduled to hold on Thursday, June 25, 2020.

The Court presided over by Hon. Justice E.A. Obile, followed a suit filed by another PDP governorship aspirant, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, who insisted that Obaseki did not purchase PDP form or undergo screening within the time-table schedule of the PDP.

To accelerate hearing on the case, the court fixed Wednesday, June 24 as it also approved the motion on notice for interlucotry injunction.

Also joined in the suit were Prince Uche Secondus, Emmanuel Ogidi, Hon. Kingsley Chinda and Chief Derekeme Boyleyefa.

Others were Senator James Manager and Hon. Barrister Ajibola Muraina as well as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
