PDP Heads To Court To Challenge Obaseki’s Victory, Calls For Dissolution Of INEC

The Peoples Democratic Party on Monday said that it would challenge the outcome of the Edo State governorship election at the election petitions tribunal.

The Independent National Electoral Commission had last Thursday declared the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Godwin Obaseki, as the winner of the election.

According to the electoral umpire, Obaseki had a total of 319,483 votes while his counterpart in the PDP, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, polled 253,173 votes to come second.

The opposition had rejected the result, which it described as a fraud, and accused INEC of alleged complicity.


But the Edo State PDP Chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, who disclosed this in a chat with The Punch in Benin, the Edo State capital, explained that the party would leave nothing to chance to  prove that the result was manipulated and that it would also expose the alleged corruption and incompetence of the electoral commission.

He, therefore, called for the dissolution of the present leadership of the INEC.
