BREAKING: Supreme Court Affirms Delta Gov’s Election

The Supreme Court has affirmed the election of the Governor of Delta State, Sheriff Oborevwori.

The court dismissed the appeals by the All Progressives Congress (APC) and its candidate, Ovie Omo-Agege, and the Labour Party (LP) and its candidate, Ken Pella, against the governor.

In the Omo-Agege appeal, the five-member panel led by Justice John Okoro said the appeal lacked merit and the appellant was unable to discharge the burden of proof placed on him.

Pella’s appeal was also dismissed for lack of merit.

The court of appeal in Lagos had affirmed the election of Oborevwori as the governor of Delta State, dismissing the appeals by the governorship candidates and their parties
