BREAKING: Delta election tribunal upholds Oborewori’s Victory



By Hannah Nathan, Warri

Delta State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has upheld the election victory of of Delta State governor RT. Hon. Sheriff Oborewori, while throwing out the petition filed by former Deputy President, Senate Ovie Omo-Agege of the All Progressive Congress, APC.

It was gathered that Justice C.H. Ahuchaogu-led tribunal gave the ruling on Friday.

The petition was dismissed on the grounds that it contained unsubstantiated allegations.

The court also noted that it was devoid of merit and was speculative.

Omo-Agege came second in the March 18 election.

He is challenging the decision of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, to declare Oborevwori the winner of the election.

The judges are yet to decide on the cases between the Labour Party (LP) and the PDP, as well as the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the PDP.
