Sheriff Oborevwori, candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta state has been disqualified by a federal high court in Abuja.

In the party’s primary in May, Mr Oborevwori who is the speaker of the Delta house of assembly polled 590 votes to beat David Edevbie, commissioner for finance during the James Ibori administration, who garnered 113 votes.

Mr Edevbie not satisfied by the outcome of the exercise had approached the court to seek redress in a suit against the winner, Mr Oborevwori, and the PDP.

He prayed that the court should bar Mr Oborevwori from parading himself as the candidate of the PDP in Delta state.

In the suit marked FHC/ABJ/CS/795/2022, the plaintiff prayed the court to restrain the PDP from forwarding Oborevwori’s name to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and also restrain INEC from receiving or recognising Oborevwori as duly nominated as the party’s flag bearer over some irregularities and submission of forged educational documents to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INE) to aid his emergence.

Delivering judgement on Thursday, Justice Taiwo agreed with the plaintiff that Oborevwori, ought not to be in the 2023 governorship election for the PDP on account of allegedly supplying false and forged documents to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in aid of his qualification for the governorship election.

The court subsequently directed INEC and the PDP to recognize the plaintiff (Mr Edevbie) as the candidate of the PDP in the 2023 governorship election in Delta State.
