The Election Petition Tribunal in Benin on Thursday dismissed the petition by Mr Okhuarobo Henry of the PDP against the INEC’s declaration of Mr Omoruyi Murphy Osaro of LP as winner of the Feb. 25 Egor/Ikpoba Federal Constituency election of Edo.
However, the Justice Chijioke led petition panel, resolved all the grounds against Okhuarobo, and averred that the petitioner merely dumped the documents on the tribunal without any probative value.
Delivering the unanimous judgment in Suit NO: EPT/ED/HR/06/ 2023, Justice O.A. Chijioke, who read the judgment, held that the petitioners failed to prove their case, and therefore, dismissed the petition for lack of merit.
The Petitioners, Henry, and PDP had approached the tribunal to challenge the election of the first respondent, on the ground that he Osaro was not qualified to contest the election.
