Oshiomhole In Tears, As Court Of Appeal Concludes Plans To Sack Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, Today

Emerging report reaching Post-Nigeria, revealed that the Court of Appeal, sitting in Benin City, may sack the embattled Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, today, being June 9, 2017.

Sources revealed that Obaseki’s predecessor, Adams Oshiomhole, is allegedly making frantic efforts to upturn the judgement, with his high profile connection in the Presidency.

Recall, that the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and its candidate in the 2016 Edo State Governorship polls, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, had appealed against the decision of the Justice Ahmed Badamasi-led Edo State Election Petition Tribunal judgement, which validated the election of Obaseki, of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

The judgement of the court, which informed Counsels to all the parties of its decision on Thursday, is expected to touch among other grounds of appeal, for an order setting aside the decision of the Tribunal, and another order nullifying the return of the second respondent, Obaseki, while declaring Ize-Iyamu as the winner, having scored the highest number of lawful votes cast in the September 28 2016 poll.

The PDP and Ize-Iyamu, alleged that the Tribunal Judges erred and truncated their (appellants) right to fair hearing, by the unequal treatment given to the cases of the parties, “by first finding fault, discrediting, disbelieving, and dismissing their petition, before considering at all and reviewing the testimonies of the witnesses of the respondents, and thus, occasioning a miscarriage of justice.”

Legal Experts have however, agreed that whatever the decision of the Court of Appeal today, parties will have cause to appeal its ruling at the Supreme Court, which decision as the apex court of the land, is final.

Who do you want as Nigeria's 2019 President???
