Court Refuses To Bar Obaseki From Participating In PDP Primaries by Islie: 1:04pm On Jun 23, 2020
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 slated for Thursday.

Mr Obaseki was granted waiver by the PDP recently after he joined the opposition party from the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The suit was instituted by one of the governorship aspirants of the PDP, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, who had vowed not to step down for Mr Obaseki.

A major reason stated by Mr Ogbeide-Ihama was that Mr 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 Mr Obaseki’s former party, the APC, Mr Ogbeide-Ihama also questioned his educational credentials.

Mr Ogbeide-Ihama also prayed that the primaries be put on hold pending when the court would hear the motion on notice.

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

Several newspapers, including PREMIUM TIMES, earlier on Tuesday reported that Mr. Obaseki had been barred by the court from contesting the election. Those accounts of the court proceeding were inaccurate, PREMIUM TIMES later confirmed.

Mr Obaseki joined the Peoples Democratic Party on Friday after he was disqualified by his former party, APC, from seeking re-election allegedly for submitting questionable certificates.

I was telling those strong headed zombies that the court order obtained didn't restrain Obaseki, but they called me a wailer. Something that was explicitly spelt out, but I was surprised because they are zombies. They lack discerning sagacity to understand common English sentence.

Nigerian politics is so toxic, plus you must get investors to invest in your ambition. You pay interests, plus repayment of the capital sum for the duration your office. Shithole!!!
