The Delta State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has upheld the election of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of the Peoples Democratic Party in the March 18 election.
According to Channels TV, 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.
The tribunal held that the petition contained unsubstantiated allegations, noting that it was devoid of merit and speculative.
Omo-Agege had challenged the declaration of Oborevwori as winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
Meanwhile, judgment is ongoing in the cases between Labour Party vs PDP and Social Democratic Party vs PDP.
