Jubilation Engulfs Edo State As Tribunal Upholds Obaseki’s Election

The streets of Benin City and the entire Edo State were engulfed in jubilation on Friday after the Edo State Governorship Election Petitions tribunal dismissed a petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, challenging the declaration of Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress as winner of the September 28, 2016.

 

The two-hour ruling read by the Chairman of the three-man panel, by Justice Ahmed Badamasi, upheld the return of Obaseki as Governor of the state by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

 

The tribunal held that the petition lacked merit as the petitioners failed to ‎prove their case.
