Delta guber: Omo-Agege rejects tribunal ruling, heads for Appeal Court

Senator Ovie Omo-Agege, the Delta State governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last election says he plans to challenge the ruling of Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, which affirmed the election of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori.

Omo-Agege said this in a statement he personally signed on Friday in Asaba.

”I call on our people to remain calm and law-abiding as we continue to pursue our case and cause,” he said.

The tribunal sitting in Asaba, headed by Justice HC Ahuchoago, had struck out the petition filed by Omo-Agege and his party challenging the victory of Oborevwiei for lack of merit.

”We came into this race to rescue our beloved Delta, knowing that it would not be a smooth sail.

”So, keep hope alive. With God, we shall get to our destination under His abiding grace.’

”Today, September 29, 2023, the Governorship Election Tribunal held in Asaba, Delta, gave judgement in our petition challenging the return of Sheriff Oborevwori of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

”The outcome is not what we expected. Let it be said with every sense of conviction and responsibility that in reaching its judgement, the tribunal in Asaba, in our respectful view, failed to avert its mind to the intent of the plethora of unambiguous innovations now contained in the Electoral Act, 2022,” he said.
