The APC lead counsel, Nichols Ichekor had Thursday at the resumed hearing tendered polling units voter register numbering about 320 documents for Aniocha South, Ndokwa East,Bomadi and Burutu LGAs.
The legal teams of both the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC) have had a hectic time sorting and inspecting the voluminous documents in the last four days.
Dissatisfied with the victory of Delta Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa, at the governorship polls, Great Ogboru had approached the tribunal seeking legal redress.
Amongst the petitioner’s prayers are that it be declared that the total votes for him should be 215,938 while that of the 1st respondent (Okowa) and 2nd respondent (PDP) should be 155,192 votes.
He is also seeking that the certificate of return issued to the 1st and 2nd respondents be declared null and void.
The petitioner wants to be returned having scored the highest number of lawful votes cast and that the 3rd respondent (INEC) should issue the petitioner with the certificate of return as the duly elected Governor of Delta State.
