Nigeria’s apex court has affirmed the election of Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
The seven man panel headed by Justice Centus Nweze, unanimous held that the appellant Great Ogboru failed to prove allegations of over-voting.
Justice Nweze said that the appeal is a waste of the precious time of the Apex Court.
Ogboru who was floored by Dr Ifeanyi Okowa in the March 9 Gubernatorial election, had dragged the Governor to tribunal challenging his victory.
Ogboru lost at both the Lower Tribunal and Court of Appeal before proceeding to the Apex court to challenge the verdict of the Lower Tribunal and Court of Appeal.
