Obaseki's Victory: PDP’s Ize-Iyamu Kicks, Vows To Appeal

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and its candidate in the 2016 Edo governorship poll, Mr Osagie Ize-Iyamu, said in Benin City today that the judgment of the Election Petitions Tribunal which dismissed their petition was unacceptable.

Ize-Iyamu told party leaders and supporters at a forum attended by the state chairman, Chief Dan Orbih, that the judgment would be appealed at a higher court.

“From the snippets I heard, the tribunal’s judgment cannot stand in the higher courts. This case must be pursued up to the Supreme Court, ” he said.

The three-man tribunal led by Justice Ahmed Badamasi today dismissed the petition filed by Ize-Iyamu and the PDP for lack of credible evidence to prove their case.

The tribunal, therefore, upheld the election of Governor Godwin Obaseki of APC.

Ize-Iyamu and the PDP had challenged INEC’s declaration of Obaseki as the winner of the Sept. 28, 2016 election.

    A skill is capital! Exchange it for money. INVEST!
    A business either sells products or services. Oftentimes, people wait for an individual, corporate organisation, or a small business set up by another individual to employ them before they earn a living. There is nothing fundamentally wrong with that. However, the reality is... Get Started
