Election of Gov Obaseki Upheld by Edo Tribunal


The Edo State Governorship Election Petitions tribunal has overruled the 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 poll by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

In a two-hour ruling read by the Chairman of the three-man panel, Justice Ahmed Badamasi, it upheld the election of Obaseki as Governor of the state.
