The Edo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) is set to challenge the declaration of Mr. Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as winner of the September 28 governorship election by the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC).
This was disclosed on by Monday by the Chairman of PDP in Edo State, Mr. Dan Orbih.
According to Orbih, “Of course, we are going to file our petition at the election petitions tribunal. We will give it our all. If nothing else, to expose to Nigerians how corrupt and incompetent INEC is, under its present leadership.
“Our lawyers are busy; they are working. Until they formally file a petition, all I can say is that we are going to challenge the result of this election at the tribunal.”
“We will pursue this matter to a logical conclusion and I believe that the judiciary has a role to play to save democracy and give Nigerians hope that, in a country where people do things with impunity, people can still approach the judiciary for justice,” he added.
