Governor Sheriff Oborevwori





The Special Adviser to the governor of Delta State on Project Monitoring/Audit Engr. Goodnews Agbi has congratulated Governor of Delta State, Elder Sheriff Francis Oborevwori on his Supreme Court Victory, describing it as victory for all Deltans.

The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal by the candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the last governorship election in Delta State, Ovie Omo-Agege.

Senator Omo-Agege had sought to sack Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).

In a judgment, delivered by Justice Inyang Okoro of the five-member panel of the Supreme Court held that the appeal lacked merit.

The court held that the APC and its candidate did not prove that the election was not conducted in substantial compliance with provisions of the Electoral Act 2023.

The court dismissed Omo-Agege’s contention that some of the result sheets that the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, relied upon to declare Oborevwori as the winner of the election, did not have serial numbers.

According to the court, even if the total number of INEC forms that the Appellants complained about are removed, it would still not affect the margin of lead that was in Oborevwori’s favour.
