|Edo PDP Primary: Obaseki To Know Fate Tomorrow by Penaldo: 11:44am On Jun 23, 2020|
Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki will on Wednesday, June 24, 2020 know his fate whether he would participate in the Edo State Peoples Democratic Party primaries or not.
A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt had on Monday restrained Governor Godwin Obaseki from participating in the PDP gubernatorial primary.
The suit was instituted by an aspirant, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihiama, asking the court to stop the governor who just defected to the party from participating in the shadow election.
Justice E.A Obile is expected to deliver ruling after hearing the matter on Wednesday ahead of Thursday’s primary of the PDP.
In the meantime, sources say Ogbeide-Ihama is being pushed by a prominent South-South Governor and a PDP Leader in Edo who wants a hold on the PDP structure of the state.
The Governor, fears that the Edo PDP structure will be lost to Obaseki who will become the leader of the party if returned as Edo State Governor come September.
The Edo State PDP primary Committee led by the Bauchi State Governor, Bala Mohammed are not parties in the matter, indicating that the process may run without Governor Obaseki.

Justice Obile Rejects Omoregie’s Request Restraining Obaseki From Contesting PDP Primaries .
Justice E. A Obile of a Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has refused a request by one of the gubernatorial aspirants in the election, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, to issue an interim order stopping Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, from participating in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) primary poll.
Recall that Obaseki was granted waiver by the PDP recently after he joined the opposition party from the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The court however, invited the PDP and seven others over the legality of the waiver granted Obaseki to participate in the primaries.
BreakingTimes can authoritatively confirm that the court did not grant any order restraining Obaseki. However, mischief makers purportedly fuelled by Omoregie, have taken to the media to report what is not.
Also, rumors that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State is behind it, has been denied.
The court in documents below listed the plaintiff’s prayers, but, it also listed the orders it granted, which nowhere in the four listed granted prayers did it grant any order restraining Governor Obaseki from Contesting the PDP primaries.
Reacting to the rumored court order, Mr. Anthony Ehilebo, the PDP Head of New Media in a statement personally signed by him, said whenever one is presented with any court document, it is very important to read thoroughly and decipher the intent of the presented court document.
The statement read in part: “When I saw the court order being flashed around and the hatchet media job I am informed is being pushed a compromised Editor at thisday, my sense as media and communications expert went into overdrive.
“The way they waited till late at night to release the deluge of planted media stories.
It is shameful that certain erstwhile leaders of the PDP in Edo want to throw the proverbial “Sand Sand” in Edo PDP’s garri, but NO man is God.
“The Party’s NWC has broad powers to grant waivers in the general common interest of the party as it did with Governor Obaseki and even in its press statement yesterday showed it favoured no particular Aspirant.”
The Media Expert urged all PDP Aspirants to “respect this position and go to the field on Thursday to test their popularity if any, without the rancours of litigation.
“They must remain informed that litigation with the party without exhausting internal mechanisms has consequences.”
“I thank our leaders for everything they have done to sustain the party through very tough times..Edo PDP is on the rise and may it soar to a place of greater glory,” the statement added.

Shame to all the enemies of Governor Obaseki. God must win over godfatherism, thuggery and violence.
