Hey there, middle schoolers! We have some news for you. The Delta State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has made a decision about a petition filed by former Deputy President, Senate Ovie Omo-Agege. He belongs to a political party called the All Progressive Congress (APC). Omo-Agege was challenging the victory of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in an election that took place on March 18.
The ruling was made by Justice C.H. Ahuchaogu and his team on Friday. They threw out Omo-Agege’s petition. Why? Well, they said that the petition didn’t have enough evidence to support its claims. In other words, the allegations made in the petition were not proven to be true. The court also mentioned that the petition lacked merit and was based on speculation.
Omo-Agege came in second place in the March 18 election. He wasn’t happy with the decision made by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to declare Oborevwori as the winner. So, he decided to challenge that decision
Now, there are still some other cases that the judges need to decide on. These cases involve the Labour Party (LP) and the PDP, as well as the Social Democratic Party (SDP) and the PDP. We’ll have to wait and see what happens with those.
