2023: After a very long battle, Supreme Court recognises Gov. Obaseki’s faction list in Edo PDP Primaries

The Supreme Court has recognised the candidates that emerged from the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, primaries in Edo State for the general elections loyal to Governor Godwin Obaseki of the state.

It will be recalled that the party in the state held parallel primaries, one by the faction loyal to Obaseki and the other led by  Dan Orbih, Deputy National Chairman of the party.

Following a Federal High Court, Abuja judgment, in favour of the Orbih group, the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, recognised the primaries conducted by his faction.

But the Obaseki group appealed to the Court of Appeal, and the appellate court held that the lower court ought not to have intervened in the matter as it was a party affair, following which the national leadership of the party recognised the primaries conducted by the Obaseki’s group.

Dissatisfied, the Orbih group headed to the Supreme Court. The apex court in its judgment, yesterday, aligned with the decision of the appellate court, which by extension gave validity to the Obaseki’s group primaries.
