Delta PDP

By Nneka Glory Nwachukwu

The legal battle for the Delta State Peoples Democratic Party Gubernatorial ticket effectively entered the last lap with the opening of hearing at the Supreme Court on Thursday.

Recall that after the PDP primaries in May, Olorogun David Edevbie challenged the qualification of Sheriff Oborevwori at the Federal High Court, Abuja, over discrepancies in his credentials and the court ruled Oborevwori unqualified but the Court of Appeal upturned the ruling prompting Edevbie to proceed to the Supreme Court.

At the first hearing, after the filing of briefs, the Supreme Court granted Edevbie the order for substituted service to the respondents.

The matter was adjourned till September 30 for the consideration of other preliminary issues.
