OBASEKI: Edo Agog As Justice Obile Denies Restraining Governor From PDP Primaries


Justice E. A Obile of a Federal High Court Port Harcourt, Rivers State, has denied restraining Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, from participating in the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Gubernatorial Primaries in Edo State.

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

He confirmed that the court did not grant any order restraining Obaseki although mischief makers purportedly fuelled by one of the PDP gubernatorial aspirants had taken to the media to report falsehood.

Also, rumors that Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State was behind it had been denied.

Responding to the so called court order, the Head of Peoples Democratic Party New media, Anthony Ehilebo said:

“Whenever one is presented with any court document it is very important to pause and take time read thoroughly and decipher the intent of the presented court document.

When I saw the court order being flashed around my sense as media and communications expert went into overdrive..

Yes the court in documents below listed their prayers..but if you read again it listed the orders it granted..which nowhere in the 4 listed granted prayers did it grant any order restraining Governor Obaseki from Contesting the PDP primaries.

It is shameful that certain erstwhile leaders of the PDP in Edo want to throw the proverbial “Sand Sand” in Edo PDPs 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 showed it favoured no particular aspirant.

I urge all our aspirants to respect this position and go to the field
