Edo APC Guber Primary: High Court Postpones Ruling On Mode Of Primary To July 6


By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – Ruling on the appropriate mode for the conduct of the governorship primary election of the Edo State chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has been adjourned until July 6, 2020, by the Federal High Court in Benin City, presided over by Justice Garba Umar.

While the counsel to the plaintiffs notified the court that the Court of Appeal had directed on June 18 that the Federal High Court hear the applications on the main suit, the counsel to the 2nd defendant, however, informed the court that he had appealed the decision of the Court of Appeal which had struck out his appeal on the jurisdiction of the court, adding that he had informed the court that he had filed a stay of proceedings and sought that the application be heard.

Two members of the APC, Kenneth Asekomhe and Matthew Iduoyirikemwen, filed the suit seeking to prevent the party from adopting the direct primary method for the Edo governorship election.
