APC Edo: Why We Withdrew Forgery Case Against Obaseki

Members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo, who filed a case against Governor Godwin Obaseki over alleged certificate forgery, have explained why they withdrew the suit.

The case, suit No FHC/ABJ/CS /553/20 Edobor Williams and others VS APC & Obaseki, was withdrawn from the Federal High Court, Abuja, by the plaintiffs who are APC members.

They said they pulled back the case since they had achieved their central goal, which was to forestall Obaseki from being handled as APC Governorship contender for September 19. 

Obaseki was excluded from the essential by the party’s National Working Committee (NWC) before he absconded to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) on which stage he is looking for re-appointment. 

In an announcement on Tuesday by Shores and Savana, the lawful delegates to Edobor Williams and others, the plantiffs stated: 

''It would be reviewed that the offended parties were against APC selecting Godwin Obaseki as its gubernatorial contender for 

the September 19, Governorship Election for Edo State by virtue of Mr. Obaseki's conflicting instructive history, bogus qualifications and manufactured Affidavit. 

''These were similar explanations behind which APC in the long run excluded Godwin Obaseki from partaking in the APC Gubernatorial primaries of 22/6/2020 as per the general inclination of the offended parties. 

''The offended parties deliberately documented a Notice of Discontinuance of the said suit having accomplished their target of preventing APC from supporting Godwin Obaseki. 

"The open must pay heed that the case was never considered on merit. Offended parties would make further strides after the designations of the considerable number of gatherings are closed and the names of their up-and-comers submitted to INEC."
