The Certified True Copy of Court documents obtained by Midwest Herald have authenticated our report on the outcome of the legal arguments yesterday at the Federal High Court in Benin City.
It will be recalled that several arguements prevailed yesterday shortly after the news broke on the decision of the court.
In our tradition of reporting only factual news, we sourced and obtained the certified copy of the court decision for the benefit of our readers and political stakeholders in Edo State.
We had exclusively reported yesterday, June 8, 2020 that:
Following the consideration of arguments by Counsel to parties, the Court delivered its Ruling and Ordered as follows;
“That all parties in the suit and their privies are hereby ordered not to do anything or proceed with any action relating to or concerning the procedure to be adopted or used by the 1st Defendant to conduct or hold the 1st Defendant primary election coming up next as scheduled pending the hearing and determination of the suit.
