Truth they say, is truth and has no alternative. You may colour or cover it but it must surely resurface.

The dangers of this belated ruling for PDP is that this case was instituted before the primaries to prevent their exclusion and like the proverbial saying, the wheels of Justice grinds slowly but it’s eventually served. Obaseki’s desperation to foist his anointed son on the People of Edo State is responsible for the current sad mood of the already depleted ranks of the PDP in Edo State.

The Obaseki’s PDP may console themselves that in this case, Justice delayed is Justice denied. They cannot be more wrong. This is because, if the superior Courts finds that the conclusions of the court of first instance constitute substantial non compliance, the subsequent action is a nullity ab initio.

The implication is that the list used for the primary and which was accepted by the NWC was fake. The primary was conducted illegally by persons who had no business voting on that February 22. 378 Lawfully elected ad-hoc Delegates were not allowed into the stadium because their names were not on the fake list. Can you put something on nothing and expect something?

Please do the Maths, your answer will shock you. Even in Engineering, we were forced to read basic Law, like, the Law of Contracts, Torts as so on.

My advice to Asue is that he should not allow emergency social media Lawyers mislead him into believing that this is a no case. In the eye of the Law, PDP has no Candidate for the Governorship election of September 21 until a higher court of competent jurisdiction set aside this bump on their black backside.

Judicial precedence abound with respect to intervention by the Courts on Party primaries to force compliance with internal Democracy. You must obey your own rules.

Zamfara, Rivers and even Bayelsa easily comes to mind. Never forget the popular notion, “the Law is an Ass” and it is what the Judges says it is.

My Party, the APC is not concerned in anyway by the self inflicted injuries and the consequences of the recklessness of an individual, Obaseki. We are committed and more than ever resolved to rescue Edo State from the clutches of strangers masquerading as advocates of the People they have never related with before now.
