Appeal Court Upholds Okowa’s Election
An appeal court sitting in Abuja has upheld the victory of Delta state governor, Ifeanyi Okowa. Governor Okowa is a member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
His election was challenged by Labor Party candidate, Chief Great Ogboru who alleged that the election was characterised by over counting and other irregularities.
The Appeal court delivered a unanimous decision and contended that the Labour Party’s candidate’s case lacked merit.
