The Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Asaba, the Delta State capital on Friday dismissed the petition filed by the All Progressives Congress governorship candidate, Ovie Omo-Agege, candidate of Social Democratic Party, Kenneth Gbagi and LP candidate, Ken Pela against the election of Governor Sheriff Oborevweri.
Omo-Agege, Gbagi and LP had approached the tribunal seeking the disqualification of Oborevweri of the PDP for overvoting, non-compliance with Electoral Act, eligibility among forged document others in the March 18, 2023 governorship elections.
The three-man panel led by Justice C.H. Ahuchaogu, while delivering the judgement, upheld that the PDP governorship candidate, Oborevwori won the election.
Ahuchaogu dismissed the petitions of former Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege for lack of merit, saying “the APC and his candidate could not prove the case of overvoting and noncompliance of the electoral Act.
