The Court of Appeal in Abuja has fixed August 19, 2022, as the date for proper hearing in the appeal seeking to upturn the judgement of the Federal High Court declaring Olorogun David Edevbie as the lawful and authentic candidate of the Delta State Peoples Democratic Party for the 2023 Governorship election.
At the proceeding today Monday the judges granted a request for the abridgement of time to enable expeditious trial.
Accordingly, all the respondents have been asked to file their replies within eight days while the appellant is to respond within two days.
It will be recalled that on July 7, 2022, the Federal High Court faulted the certificates and other documents filed by Sheriff Oborevwori for nomination as Gubernatorial candidate of the PDP and commanded both the party and INEC to immediately recognise Olorogun David Edevbie as the rightful and lawful candidate of the party for the forthcoming election.
