Supreme Court Upholds Obaseki PDP Faction in Edo
In a landmark judgement, the Supreme Court of Nigeria has today, dismissed an appeal filed by persons loyal to the National Vice-Chairman (South-South) of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Dan Osi Orbih, seeking to recognise them as authentic delegates produced on April 30, 2022.
With this verdict, Governor Obaseki has fully taken control of the party affairs in the state, and in extension a loss to Wike camp.
The Apex Court dismissed the Appeal marked SC/CV/979/2022, which was lodged by Iyore Osagie & Ors (for the appellants). The Court upheld the judgement of the lower court
"The issue of delegates are non-justicable and domestic affairs of a Political Party," The Supreme Court ruled.
The seeming crisis rocking the Edo State Chapter of the PDP, over the authentic candidates to fly the party’s flag in states, and National Assembly seats had unsettled the camps of loyalists to Godwin Obaseki and Zonal Vice Chairman of the Party, Orbih.
