The Supreme Court has affirmed Godwin Obaseki as the governor of Edo state, dismissing the appeal filed by the PDP candidate. Ize-Iyamu.

The apex court said it would give, in detail, its reasons for the judgment on July 24, 2017.

A seven-man panel led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onnoghen unanimously dismissed the appeal.

The CJN stated that the court had gone through the brief earlier, making it easier to arrive at a judgment as quickly as possible.

Ize-Iyamu had approached the apex court filing the dismissal of his appeal at the Appeal Court, which challenged Obaseki’s election as governor.

The appeal before the Supreme Court had 21 grounds upon which the appellant and his party were standing to demand that Osagie Ize-Iyamu be declared the winner of the September 28, 2016, governorship election.
