According to the report, the judgment, which came two weeks to the conduct of the governorship primary election of the party, had created fear and apprehension among the 16 governorship aspirants of the party.

It was gathered that Oguebego has announced the postponement of the ward delegates election even when the committee set up for the exercise had arrived and were set to conduct the election.

Court’s judgement is an effort in futility

Speaking on the development on Thursday, June 10, Nwobu described the judgment as an effort in futility, adding that the courts were on strike and that had long withdrawn from the matter.

The Guardian also reports that he contended that there was a subsisting judgment of the high court of Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, which is a court of coordinate jurisdiction.
