A federal high court sitting in Port Harcourt has restrained the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP from allowing Governor Godwin Obaseki to participate in the party’s primary scheduled for Thursday, 25th June, 2020.


The court presided over by Justice E.A. Obile also restrained the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC from recognizing Obaseki as the candidate of the party.


Sequel to an ex parte motion brought before the court by an aspirant in the election and House of Representatives member, Honourable Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama.


Obaseki according to the court should show cause by Wednesday, June 24 why the order should not subsist.


Ogbeide-Ihama had been favoured to win the PDP primary having gotten the backing of the PDP establishment for the contest before the entry of Obaseki into the party.


Ogbeide-Ihama’s lawyers D.C. Denwigwe (SAN), Ferdinard Orbih (SAN) and O.O. Okonkwo, Esq presented the affidavit sworn to by the applicant to the judge who thus granted the injunction and fixed June 24 for the hearing putting Obaseki’s second term aspiration in more suspense.
