Labour Party candidate in the April 11 governorship election in Delta State, Chief Great Ogboru, has rejected the results of the exercise, and said that his party will approach the election tribunal to upturn the results, which declared Senator Ifeanyi Okowa elected governor of the oil rich state.
Chief Ogboru who has been contesting the governorship election in the state since 1999, has been in court since then contesting the results of the governorship elections.
He instituted legal battles against former Governor James Ibori, and also incumbent Governor Emmanuel Uduaghan.
Ogboru, who addressed a press conference at his Abraka home on Thursday, said “The rigging is too senseless to ignore.”
