Recall that that Obaseki resigned from the All Progressive Congress after he was disqualified from taking part in the primary election.

The controversial move also saw him switch sides to the PDP and was set to take part in the Primaries.

However, another governorship aspirant of the PDP, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, filed a lawsuit against Governor Obaseki.

Other defendants in the lawsuit include Prince Uche Secondus, Emmanuel Ogidi, Hon. Kingsley Chinda, Chief Debekeme Boyleyefa, Senator James Manager, Hon. Barr. Ajibola Muraina, People Democratic Party and the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC.

According to Vanguard, Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, had earlier agreed to step down for the governor following his switch from the APC to the PDP.

However, that has now changed as he doesn’t seem to be ready to give up his aspiration in favor of Obaseki who just arrived at the party.

Below are the court docuements restricting Obaseki from taking part in the primaries of the APC:
