DELEGATES-LIST-FOR-EDO-2020-GOVERNORSHIP-PRIMARY-ELECTION-1Court Strikes Out Suit Seeking To Bar Obaseki From Participating In Edo PDP Primary
The Federal High Court in Port Harcourt, Rivers State has struck out a suit seeking to bar Governor Godwin Obaseki from participating in the Edo governorship primary under the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), as the parties agreed to an out-of-court settlement.
Mr Ogbeide-ihama had filed a suit in the court asking it to prevent any member of the party that has purchased forms but not screened within the time stipulated to contest the PDP primary.
Subsequently, the court on Tuesday, granted the request for an accelerated hearing of the suit but before the hearing on the application Wednesday , Ogbeide-Ihama’s counsel requested that the court stood down the case for some time, to allow for an out-of-court settlement.
The presiding judge, Justice Emmanuel Obile, granted the prayers after the counsel to all the defendants aligned with the request.
