The Supreme Court on Friday affirmed the election of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori as the duly elected governor of Delta State.
The apex court gave the ruling while dismissing the appeal field by Senator Ovie Omo Agege of the All Progressives Congress (APC) challenging the victory of Governor Oborevwori in the March 18th election.
Justice Nyang Okoro who read the lead judgement said the former Deputy President of the Senate (Omo-Agege) failed to prove his case.
The court noted that Omo-Agege failed to provide substantial evidence to prove that the election failed to comply with the provisions of the Electoral Act.
In a post on his verified Facebook page, Governor Oborevwori wrote, “To the glory of God,the Supreme Court today affirmed me as the duly elected Governor of Delta State. I commend the judiciary, my legal team, supporters and all Deltans. Truly, The judiciary is the last hope of ordinary Nigerians.
“The legal battles are over, it is now time to continue to serve fully the people of Delta state in line with my God given vision, the MORE agenda. And l hereby invite all to join hands with me to move our state forward.
“To God alone be the glory!”
