The leadership tussle in the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Edo chapter, ended yesterday after the Supreme Court dismissed an appeal instituted at the Court by Dan Orbhi-led faction.

The suit sought the court order to authenticate the ad-hoc delegate elections conducted by Dan Orbhi’s faction and to invalidate another one conducted by Governor Godwin Obaseki’s faction.

Justice Emmanuel Agim, the Apex Court held that the issue of leadership by political parties is an internal affair and as such, the courts have no jurisdiction.

In the appeal, filed by Monday Osagie, the Supreme Court said the appeal lacked merit because it is not justiciable.

Agim who delivered the unanimous judgment asked political parties to always adhere strictly to their guidelines, rules and regulations in order to promote genuine democracy.

Obaseki and a Chieftain of the PDP and Orbhi have been having running battles on who controls the party in the state.
