•Sacked Delta PDP 2023 Governorship Candidate, Oborevwori

 

By WANDOO SOMBO
 
The Federal High Court, Abuja has disqualified the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta,
Mr Sherrif Oborevwori, from contesting the 2023 election.
 
 
Delivering judgment on Thursday in a suit filed by Mr Olorogun Edevbie, Justice Taiwo Taiwo held that Oborevwori lacked the legal competence to participate in the election.
 
Edevbie had approached the court following his grievance with the process that produced Oborevwori  as the party’s governorship candidate.
 
It was his contention  that the defendant was not validly nominated by his party.
 
He also held that the PDP violated both its constitution and the electoral guidelines, during its state congress that produced Oborevwori as its flag bearer for the governorship election.
 
He prayed the court to restrain the party from forwarding Oborevwori’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
 
The aggrieved party member also asked the court to restrain INEC from receiving or recognising Oborevwori as the duly nominated candidate of  the party for the election.
 
The plaintiff also sought an order to restrain Oborevwori from parading or carrying himself as the governorship candidate of the PDP in the state.
 
The judge held that the suit had merits  and accordingly granted the reliefs sought by Edevbie against Oborevwori. (NAN)
