A Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt , Rivers State has barred Governor Godwin Obaseki from participating in the Edo State Peoples Democratic Party governorship primary slated for Thursday , June 25, 2020 .
According to the court documents , which were made available to our correspondent , the suit was instituted by one of the governorship aspirants on the PDP, Omoregie Ogbeide -Ihama , who had vowed not to step down for Obaseki.
Ogbeide – Ihama , prayed the court to stop Obaseki from participating in the primary on several grounds .
A major reason by Ogbeide -Ihama was that Obaseki recently joined the party and that only those who purchased the forms during the stipulated window before the waiver granted Obaseki and his deputy ,
Philip Shaibu, who recently defected from the All Progressives Congress, should be allowed to partake in the primaries .
He also questioned the validity of Obaseki’ s certificates .
