Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday congratulated Governor Godwin Obaseki on yet another victory at the Supreme Court.

The apex court, yesterday, struck out APC’s appeal against Obaseki on the grounds that it failed to prove it case beyond reasonable doubt. It also said the appellant failed to prove their case as they did not provide any disclaimer from the school that the results was not issued by them to Obaseki. In the judgment delivered by Justice Emmanuel Agim, the court agreed with the lower courts that the appellant did not meet sufficient requirement to prove their case, awarding N1million in favour of Obaseki.

The Edo PDP, in a statement signed by the State Publicity Secretary, Chris Nehikhare, said they had warned the APC that it was again traveling the road of ignominy instead of joining them to build a society where hard work is rewarded but their advice was ignored.

“With the finality of the Supreme Court judgment, we sincerely hope that APC and its leadership will turn a new leaf of cooperation and collaboration in the building of a society where Edo People’s welfare is the watchword. We understand and concede that the legal route has become part and parcel of electioneering process. But do not understand nor condone how, when the people have spoken loudly and clearly through the ballot, politicians will manufacture charges in an attempt to deny the electorate their choice.”
