Supreme Court Affirms Oborevwori As Governor of Delta State


…Dismisses Ovie Omo-Agege’s appeal 

The Supreme Court on Friday dismissed Ovie Omo-Agege’s appeal seeking to overturn Governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s election as governor of Delta State.

The apex court holds that the appellant is unable to prove his case of over-voting and noncompliance with the electoral laws.

The justices are giving summary judgment for want of time, as there are other states’ appeals to be ruled upon.

The justices are now set to deliver judgment in that of the Social Democratic Party (PDP) Vs People Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta, as well as the Labour Party (LP) and the PDP still in Delta.


Again, the apex court has also dismissed the appeal of the SDP candidate against Governor Oborevwori. The panel of five justices dismiss the appeal for lack of merit. It is a unanimous decision, and no cost is awarded.

The three political parties namely APC, SDP, and LP, and the candidates are all contesting the declaration of Sheriff Oborevwori as the elected Governor of Delta State.
