The petition filed by the Action Alliance against Governor Godwin Obaseki’s re-election has been struck out by the Edo State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Benin City.

The Tribunal struck out the petition challenging Governor Obaseki’s victory in the September poll in a unanimous ruling delivered on Thursday.

 

Justice Chukwudi Nwakwo delivered the ruling in the presence of the Chairman of the Tribunal, Justice Abdulrazak Abdulkareem, and the third judge, Justice Josephine Ayua.

 

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) were joined as respondents to the petition.

 

 

The counsel to the petitioners, Steven Osaigbovo was absent when the case was called.

 

The Tribunal ruled that in the petition against the first and second respondents, the petitioners failed to file the pre-hearing notice, hence, it ruled that the petitioners were deemed to have abandoned the petition and, thereafter, dismissed the suit.

 

Similarly, in the petition against the third respondent, the Tribunal held that the pre-hearing notice was not filed within time by the petitioners, therefore, went ahead to dismiss the petition.
