The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by the candidate of the PDP challenging the election of Governor Godwin Obaseki for lacking in merit.
The apex court said it would give in detail, its reasons for the judgment on July 24, 2017.
A seven man panel led by the Chief Justice of Nigeria, Justice Walter Onneghen unanimously dismissed the appeal.
The CJN stated that the court had gone through the brief earlier, making it easier to arrive at a judgment as quickly as possible.
The PDP candidate Mr Ize-Iyamu had approached the apex court filing the dismissal of his appeal at the Appeal Court, which challenged Obaseki’s election as governor.
