Justice E.A. Obile of the Federal High Court in Port Harcourt has banned the newest member of the PDP from participating in the party's primary election scheduled for Thursday, June 25.


The motion filed by a member of the opposition, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, is seeking a court order to stop Secondus and PDP from allowing Obaseki to buy the forms for the Edo state governorship primary.



The party's national chairman, Prince Uche Secondus, PDP, Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), chairman of the party screening committee, Kingsley Chinda, other members of the committee, and Obaseki were listed as defendants in the case. Justice Obile granted the interim injunction as requested as hearing in the matter case has been adjourned till Wednesday, June 24.


The PDP had earlier announced a waiver for Obaseki who joined the party on Friday, June 19, to enable him to participate in the primary election. Obaseki was screened by the party's committee on Saturday, June 20.



Ikhine, a Fellow of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (FNSE), announced his decision on Monday, June 22, at his campaign secretariat in the state capital, Benin. Governor Obaseki, the PDP state party chairman, Dr Tony Aziegbemi, and other party leaders from across the state were in attendance at the briefing.


Ikhine said Obaseki’s defection to the party was God’s great answer to the party and his aspiration.


Following Ikhine's decision, the Edo state governor is now favourite to clinch the PDP's governorship ticket in Edo state. Ahead of the PDP primary, Governor Obaseki's chances have become brighter after he met with key stakeholders within the opposition party.


Until Obaseki’s ordeal, the PDP was said to have settled for Hon. Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, a member of the House of Representatives and chairman, committee on culture and tourism as their preferred flag bearer.
