There is more trouble in the offing for the Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki as a case has been filled by Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama at the Federal High Court, Port Harcourt to restrain him from participating in the PDP Governorship primary election.
It would be recalled that last week, Governor Obaseki dumped the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) after he was disqualified from participating in the party’s primary election.
Consequently, Obaseki pitched his tent with PDP and even renamed a street after Bukola Saraki, the party’s national leader with the hope of clinching the party’s Governorship ticket ahead of September 2020 poll.
However, there is more trouble in the offing for Obaseki having being dragged to court by Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, one of the PDP Governorship aspirants.
Ogbeide-Ihama asked the court to restrain Obaseki from participating in the Edo State Primary election.
Ogbeide-Ihama said only aspirants who purchased the party’s nomination forms and were screened within the stipulated time should be allowed to contest in the primary.
In his ruling on Monday, Justice E.A Obile, granted Ogbeide-Ihama’s request.
The court also asked the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) not to recognise the governor as an aspirant until the determination of the suit.
See details below:
The PDP Primary Election is scheduled to hold on 25th June.
Can we safely say that Governor Obaseki has jumped from frying pan to fire?
