Edo guber race: APC hires topmost lawyers and SAN's, seeks to disqualify Obaseki

APC hires topmost lawyers, SAN's, seeks to disqualify Edo governor, Godwin Obaseki.

In the forthcoming gubernatorial election, Edo governor faces another hurdle in his bid to get re-elected.

The APC and one of its members, Edobor Williams, instituted the cases few weeks to the Edo governorship election.

Foremost lawyer and Senior Advocate of Nigeria (SAN), Chief Wole Olanipekun, is leading four other SANs in the case.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has instituted a case of certificate forgery and perjury against Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo state and his deputy, Philip Shaibu, at a Federal High Court in Benin City, the state capital.

The party wants both the governor and his deputy to be disqualified from the elections scheduled for Saturday, September 19, based on allegations of forgery.

Recall that governor Obaseki was disqualified from the APC prior to the forthcoming gubernatorial election.

He then defected to the PDP to get their governorship ticket.

The APC and it's assembled SAN's have also instituted a case against the PDP. They also want the court to prevent the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), from fielding any candidates in the election.
