Gov. Obaseki wins at Edo election petition tribunal

The Edo State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Benin has upheld the election of Governor Godwin Obaseki.

Justice Ahmed Badamosi declared that the petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party  (PDP) and its candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, lacked merit.

The Tribunal stated among other things that the reliance of the petitioners on the ticking of the name of a prospective voter on the left side of the voters’ register to mark complete accreditation was only an administrative guideline for election officials.
