Edo Election: Gov. Obaseki wins certificate forgery case
The plaintiffs accused Obaseki of certificate forgery in a suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/553/2020.
Also named as plaintiffs in the suit are Edobor Williams, Ugbesia Abudu Godwin and Amedu Dauda Anakhu.
They asked the court to declare that the incumbent Governor is “not qualified to run or seek election to the office of the governor of Edo State” in the forthcoming election.
However, at the mention of the case at the Federal High Court on Monday, neither the plaintiffs nor their lawyers appeared in court.
Obaseki and his lawyers were also not in court.
Justice Anwuli Chiekere, given the development, struck out the suit.
