Mr. Ken Pela candidate of the Labour Party (LP) won at the Appeal Court in Abuja after the court issued a fresh order to the Delta Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal, ENigeria Newspaper reports…

ENigeria Newspaper reports that the Delta Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal had earlier dismissed Mr Pela’s petition in July 2023 claiming that it was incompetent and a flagrant violation of paragraph 18 subsection 1 of the 4th Schedule to the Electoral Act 2022.

But in a recent development on Thursday morning, an Appeal Court in Abuja while delivering a ruling on the interlocutory appeal filed by Mr. Pela against the dismissal of his petition tribunal ordered the tribunal to immediately revisit the petition of the governorship candidate of the Labour Party, against the state governor, Sheriff Oborevwori.

Mr Pela, in his petition EPT/DL/GOV/01/23, is challenging the outcome of the 2023 governorship election in the state and seeking leave of the tribunal to nullify the declaration of Oborevwori as the Delta State governor.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was joined in the petition as 1st respondent while Governor Oborevwori and his Deputy, Monday Onyeme are 2nd and 3rd respondents respectively with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the 4th respondent.

Dissatisfied with the tribunal decision, Mr. Pela went to the Court of Appeal to ask among other things for an order to compel the Tribunal to entertain his petitions.
