The Presiding Judge, in his ruling, said no iota of fact was cited to back the claims of Obaseki’s allies that the candidate of the party failed to satisfy any requirement in his registration as a member of the party.

The Court held that the Membership card presented by Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu conclusively shows that he is a member of the Party, and those challenging it presented no convincing evidence to state otherwise.

Additionally, and perhaps most significantly, the court held that the membership of a party is an internal affair of the political party and as such, a non-justiciable matter. View pictures in App save up to 80% data. Pastor Osagie

Ize lyamu popularity has long been degraded. he's only deceived by his past glory of dark era of Edo politics. When you go round you will definitely know that it's obaseki everywhere. The possibility of him ringing this election successfully is zero bc of the growing awareness of the electorate as far as edo politics is concerned.
