On Friday, the Delta State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal dismissed the petition filed by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, on the grounds of lacking merit. The petition had challenged the election victory of Governor Sheriff Oborevwor.
The three-member tribunal panel headed by Justice C.H. Ahuchaogu, in it’s judgment, affirmed the return of Oborevwori as the winner of the March 18, 2023 gubernatorial election in the state.
The tribunal held that the petitioners failed to prove allegations of non-compliance with the Electoral Act, corrupt practices beyond a reasonable doubt.
