Delta State, Nigeria – In a significant legal development, the Delta State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal has dismissed the petition filed by Senator Ovie Omo-Agege of the All Progressives Congress (APC), challenging the election victory of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori.

The tribunal, presided over by Justice C.H. Ahuchaogu and comprising a three-member panel, made this ruling on Friday. It cited the petition’s lack of merit as the primary reason for its dismissal.
