The APC and Williams Edobor, a chieftain, want the governor booted out for suspected forgery of certificates.

Judge Ahmed Ramat Mohammed of the Federal High Court, Abuja, ordered a judgment on Saturday after the parties’ lawyers had acknowledged their written addresses.

The plaintiffs dragged Obaseki to court for reportedly forging a degree certificate from the University of Ibadan (UI) that he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ahead of the election for governorship on 19 September.

On July 14, 2019, they requested the court to rule in the complaint filed that the Edo helmsman and his party were ineligible to participate.

In acknowledging his written address, the lawyer of Obaseki, Ken Mozia (SAN), urged the court to dismiss the case of the plaintiffs on the basis that they woefully failed to justify their point.
