The Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja has dismissed the appeal filed by Chief Great Ogboru, the Labour Party’s governorship candidate in 2015 governorship election in Delta state.

Ogboru was challenging the judgment of the state Governorship Election Petition Tribunal, which affirmed the elction of  Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.

However, in his ruling on Thursday, December 24, Justice Uwani Abba-Aji said that Ogboru’s appeal lacked merit and further upheld the tribunal ruling, which had earlier dismissed the Labour Party’s guber candidate petition.

Ifeanyi Okowa

Earlier this year, LP’s candidate filed his petition before the tribunal challenging the Independent National Electoral Commission’s declaration of Okowa of the PDP as winner of the poll.

In the petition, he alleged that there was overvoting as the number of total votes recorded exceeded the number of voters accredited by the card readers.
