Edo Poll: PDP Loses As Court Of Appeal Validates Governor Obaseki’s Election

During sitting on Monday, July 10, the apex court also dismissed the appeal filed by Osagie Ize-Iyamu, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), challenging the election of Governor Obaseki for lacking in merit.

A seven man panel led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onneghen, while ‘unanimously’ dismissing the appeal, agreed to give its reasons for the judgment on July 24, 2017.

The CJN stated that the court had gone through the brief earlier, making it easier to arrive at a judgment as quickly as possible.

The news comes barely 12 days after the State House of Assembly confirmed 18 nominees ‎sent to it by the governor as commissioners.

The nominees were cleared ‎eight days after the list was read during plenary on June 20, 2017.

Those on the list include Yekini Idaiye (Akoko Edo), Ohonbamu Paul (Egor)‎, ‎E. Agbale (Esan Central), Emmanuel Usoh (Esan North-East), Magdalene Ohenhen (Esan South-East) andAmiolemen Osahon (Esan West).
