The court also ordered the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from recognising Obaseki as a candidate in the primary election of the party.

This was following a suit filed on Monday by one of the governorship aspirants of the PDP, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, who had vowed not to step down for Obaseki.

Ogbedie-Ihama had prayed the court to restrain the governor from participating in the exercise based on grounds that he did not purchase the form within the time stated in the party’s time-table.

Joined in the suit were Prince Uche Secondus, Emmanuel Ogidi, Hon. Kingsley Chinda and Chief Derekeme Boyleyefa. Others are Senator James Manager and Hon. Barrister Ajibola Muraina as well as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

The Court fixed hearing on the suit for Wednesday, June 24, 2020, and also okayed accelerated hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice for Interlocutory Injunction.

KanyiDaily recalls that the PDP had, last week granted a waiver to Governor Obaseki and his deputy, Philip Shaibu, to contest on its platform.

The opposition party also postponed its governorship primary earlier scheduled for Tuesday, June 23 to Thursday, June 25, 2020.
