The #Edo #State Election Petitions #Tribunal sitting in Benin on Friday upturned the election of the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Yakubu Gowon, as the lawmaker representing Etsako West II Constituency in the Edo State House of Assembly.
Gowon had been declared the winner of the April 11 state assembly poll and returned elected to represent the constituency, where Governor Adams Oshiomhole hails from, by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
The tribunal, therefore, held that all the votes cast for the #APC candidate were wasted and that the Peoples Democratic Party candidate, Sylvanus Eriagha, who was the first runner up with 4,001 votes was the rightful person to be declared winner of the poll.
Reacting to the judgement, the State Chairman of the #PDP, Chief Dan Orbih, described the decision of the tribunal as a ”sweet victory” for the party which, he said, would keep “hope alive for the people.”
The decision by the Edo State Tribunal to upturn the victory of the APC lawmaker is, indeed, a “sweet victory” for the Peoples Democratic Party.
The All Progressives Congress in Edo have been taken things for granted, and this humiliating defeat suffered by the party in the state must be both an eye opener and a wake up call.
No single party ought to control the democracy of this nation without a legitimate challenge. It is great to finally see the PDP pose a great challenge to the APC.
Well done!!! PDP!!!!!!!
