JUST IN…Appeal Court sets aside judgment disqualifying Ize-Iyamu, deputy

Published

The Appeal Court in Benin, Edo State on Monday, set aside the judgment of the Edo High Court, Benin, which disqualified Pastor Ize-Iyamu and his running mate Alhaji Gani Audu, from participating in the September 19, 2020 election in Edo State. Both men were candidates of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The three-member panel of the appellate court set aside the judgment of the Edo High Court, Benin, which disqualified them from participating in the gubernatorial polls.
Appeal Court’s Justices O.F.Omoleye, B.A. Georgewill and O.E.Oho unanimously declared that there was no evidence of credentials’ forgery on the part of Audu, as earlier ruled.
The Judges also declared that the suit was statute-barred, since it was filed outside the 14-day constitutional threshold, thereby upholding the appeal of Ize-Iyamu and Audu, while setting aside the judgment of the Edo high court.
