Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, and his deputy, Philip Shaibu
The Federal High Court sitting in Benin City, the Edo State capital, on Monday, August 17, 2020, granted the application of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to serve court processes on the State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, and his deputy, Philip Shaibu through the office of the Attorney General of the state in the two matters filed by the APC seeking their (Obaseki and Shaibu) disqualification from the forthcoming governorship election for certificate forgery/false information.

The Federal High Court 1, Benin City, presided over by Justice M.G. Umar in Suit No. FHC/B/CS/74/202: All Progressive Congress & Anor v. Godwin Nogheghase Obaseki and Ors, and Suit No. FHC/B/CS/75/2020: All Progressives Congress & Anor. v. Phillip Shaibu & Ors, after hearing Counsel for the All Progressives Congress, Victor Ohiosuma Esq., leading P.E. Uwadiae Esq., ordered substituted service of the Originating Processes in the matter, on the governor and his deputy who are the candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), in the forthcoming governorship election in Edo, scheduled for September 19, 2020.

Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, and his deputy, Philip Shaibu
This was sequel to the facts deposed to in affidavits in support of the application filed seeking for an Order of Substituted Service, the evasiveness of both Obaseki and Shaibu to receive the Originating Processes in respect of the said matters that question the academic qualifications of both the governor and his deputy in standing in as candidates of the PDP in the forthcoming election.

The matters were therefore adjourned to 26th of August, 2020, for further mention.
