Federal High Court bars Obaseki from PDP primary

The Federal High Court sitting in Port Harcourt has Governor Godwin Obaseki from participating in the PDP gubernatorial primary.

The suit was instituted by an aspirant Omoregir Ogbeide-Ihiama asking the court to stop the governor who just decamped to the party from participating in the primaries.

Omoregir Ogbeide-Ihama’s argument was that since Obaseki was not part of the candidates screened by the PDP NWC initially before the date on the timetable lapsed, he should not be allowed to participate in the primaries and the court agrees.
