The Court of Appeal sitting in Asaba, Delta State, on Friday dismissed the appeal filed by the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the March 9 governorship election in the state, Great Ogboru, and declared Ifeanyi Okowa as the validly elected governor of the state.
A five-man panel of the appellate court led by Justice Uzo Ndukwe-Anyanwu unanimously dismissed Ogboru’s appeal against Okowa for lack of merit.
The panel reaffirmed the earlier judgment of the election tribunal which upheld the governor’s victory in the election.
According to the panel, Ogboru and his party were unable to prove their case against Okowa.
