Delta Governorship: Court Restrains PDP, Oborevwori

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has restrained the Peoples Democratic Party in the interim from forwarding the name of Mr Oborevwori Sheriff Francis Orhowedor to the Independent National Electoral Commission, as well as the INEC from receiving his name and acting in any manner recognising him as the flag bearer of the PDP for the Delta 2023 Governorship elections.

The court also restrained Oborevwori from parading himself as the candidate of the PDP for the Delta 2023 Governorship election.

The orders emerged from an Exparte Motion in suit number FHC/ABJ/CS/715/2022 filed by Moses Ogbe and Timinepere Ogobiri of Patani LGA Ward 8 before His Lordship, Hon Justice Taiwo O. Taiwo of the Federal High Court, Abuja Judicial Division on May 31, with the Peoples Democratic Party, the Independent National Electoral Commission and Francis Oborevwori as 1st, 2nd and 3rd defendants, respectively.
