The Benin Division of the Court of Appeal, sitting in Benin City, Edo state has nullified the election and Tribunal victory of Chief Ighoyota Amori of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) representing Delta Central Senatorial District at the Senate.
Recall that the Election Petition Tribunal sitting in ASABA, Delta state had earlier ruled in favour of Amori as winner of the controversial election but Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege (Petitioner) of the Labour Party (LP) moved on to the Court of Appeal to further challenge the Tibunal ruling.
Chairman of the five-man panel of Appeal Court Judges, Justice Uwani Abba-Aji upturned the Tribunal’s earlier ruling and held that the LP Candidate at the poll, Obarisi Ovie Omo-Agege be sworn in duly elected.
