Presided over by Justice E.A Obile, the ruling has now restrained Godwin Obaseki, from participating in the governorship primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scheduled to hold on Thursday, June 25, 2020.
Justice Obile gave the order in a suit filed by another PDP governorship aspirant, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, who said that Obaseki did not purchase PDP form or undergo screening within the time-table schedule.
The Court, which fixed hearing on the suit for Wednesday, June 24, 2020, also okayed accelerated hearing and determination of the Motion on Notice for Interlocutory Injunction.
Joined in the lawsuit were Prince PDP national chair, Uche Secondus, Emmanuel Ogidi, Hon. Kingsley Chinda and Chief Derekeme Boyleyefa.
Others include Senator James Manager and Hon. Barrister Ajibola Muraina as well as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
It should be recalled that Obaseki resigned his membership from APC on June 16 and defected to PDP on June 19 with hope of being the party’s flagbearer in the Edo state forthcoming governorship election.
