Through his attorney Alex Ejesieme (SAN), Obi reacted to the originating petition by filing a notice of preliminary objection, dated July 18, asking the court to dismiss the PDP lawsuit “for want of essential jurisdiction.”

Obi has four reasons for objecting to the PDP’s Suit.

The first ground said that the plaintiff’s lawsuit was “speculative, conjectural in nature, and devoid of actual facts, thereby divesting this court of jurisdiction to decide over same.”
