Election Tribunal Dismisses APC Omo-Agege’s Petition, Affirms Oborevwori As Duly Elected Governor


Election petition tribunal sitting in Delta State on Friday, dismissed the petition lodged by the All Progressives Congress candidate—APC, Senator Ovie Omo-Agege’s petition challenging the election of governor Sheriff Oborevwori.

It struck out the petition filed before it by Omo-Agege for lacking merit.

The three man tribunal headed by Justice C.H. Ahuchaogu-led upheld the return of Oborevwori as the lawful winner of the March 18, 2023 governorship election in the state.

It ruled that the petitioners failed to prove allegations of non-compliance with the Electoral Act, and corrupt practices beyond a reasonable doubt.
