The Delta State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal on Friday, upheld the election of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had declared Oborevwori of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the winner of the March 18 guber election in the state.
In the ruling, the three-member tribunal headed by Justice C.H. Ahuchaogu dismissed the petition filed by former Deputy President of the Senate, Ovie Omo-Agege of the All Progressive Congress (APC).
According to the tribunal, the petition contained unsubstantiated allegations, noting that it was devoid of merit and speculative.
Omo-Agege who came second in the March 18 election challenged the declaration of Oborevwori as winner of the election by INEC.
Meanwhile, judgment is ongoing in the cases between the Labour Party (LP) vs. PDP and the Social Democratic Party (SDP) vs. PDP.
