Court sacks Sheriff Francis Oborevwori as governorship candidate of PDP in Delta State

A High Court sitting in Abuja on Thursday, July 7, disqualified Delta Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Delta state, Sheriff Francis Oborevwori, from contesting in the 2023 governorship election.

Justice Taiwo O. Taiwo ruled that the plaintiff, David Edevbie proved beyond reasonable doubt that the Sheriff was unqualified by virtue of the discrepancies in his documents.

The court however ordered for fresh primaries before the final date of change of candidates.

The Delta State PDP Chairman, Mr. Kingsley Esiso when contacted said he is yet to read the court judgment to know the next line of action.

More details to follow…
