Oborevwori Not Eligible To Contest – Abuja FHC

194
David Edevbie
The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja today disqualified Delta State Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship candidate, Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborowheri on certificate issues.
The court ruled that Oborevwori was not qualified to contest in the first place. It means that his participation in the PDP governorship Primaries was an aberration
 The judgement, which granted all the prayers sought by the Delta State immediate past Chief of Staff, Olorogun David Edevbie, renders all votes cast for Sheriff Oborevwori null and void and of no effect.
With the judgement, it is left for the PDP to quickly arrange a substitution or wait for possible appeal of the judgement by Delta State House of Assembly (DTHA) Speaker Rt. Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori, but minding the timeline for substitution of candidates.
While advising the PDP to immediately substitute Olorogun David Edevbie’s name as the Party candidate for the Governorship having come second position, sources are of the believe that the Court shied away from declaring the Second runner up for reason best known to them.
