Edo gov'ship: Supreme Court upholds Obaseki's election
In the lead judgement by the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen, the apex court held that Ize-Iyamu's appeal lacks merit.

Ize-Iyamu had alleged irregularities and gross non-compliance with the Electoral Act against Governor Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the September 28, 2016 governorship election.

The Edo State Election Petitions Tribunal and the Appeal Court, both in Benin City, have dismissed the petition and upheld the election of Obaseki.

APC polled 319,483 votes as against 253,173 by the PDP.
