Edo State High Court Adjourns Sitting On Suit Against Ize-Iyamu, Oshiomhole

By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – In a ruling on Thursday, June 4, 2020, the hearing of the suit challenging Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu’s membership of the All Progressives Congress (APC), was adjourned to June 17, 2020, by an Edo State High Court sitting in Benin City, the state capital.

Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Governorship candidate in the 2016 gubernatorial election in Edo State, having cross carpeted to the All Progressive’s Congress (APC), is vying to slug it out with the incumbent Governor of the state, Godwin Obaseki, at the forthcoming state convention, where the APC will pick its flag bearer for the September, 2020, Governorship Election.

The suit at the high court, which is against POI and Adams Oshiomhole, the APC’s National Chairman, was filed by Kenneth Asekhome and members of the party’s  State Executive Committee, challenging the waiver granted to Ize-Iyamu to contest the APC primaries for the forthcoming governorship election on the grounds that the waiver granted by Oshiomhole was in violation of certain Sections of the APC Constitution.

Justice Ahamiojie fixed June 17, 2020, for full hearing on the suit, following introductory arguments of the counsels to the parties involved.
