Edo PDP aspirant Ogbeide-Ihama settle out of court with Obaseki

Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, a governorship aspirant of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Edo state has reached an out-of-court settlement with the state governor, Godwin Obaseki.

Ogbeide-Ihama had filed a suit asking the court to compel the PDP not to allow Obaseki to participate in the already scheduled primary election of the party.

However, according to AIT, on Wednesday, Ferdinand Orbih told the court to stood down the suit for Parties to settle outside the court, in which Justice Emmanuel Obile agreed to his request.

Justice Obile mentioned to the parties involved that he does not stand down matters in court, but granted the request based on the urgency of the suit.

Ferdinand Orbih filed an application praying the court to give a standing order to enable the parties tidy up and resolve the matter amicably outside the judiciary process.

All the Defendants’ Counsels in the matter did not oppose to the application to settle out of court.

The case has been stood down for a report of settlement by 12:30pm Wednesday.

The Edo PDP governorship primary comes up on Thursday and one aspirant, Gideon Ikhine, has already stepped down for Obaseki.
