The Court of Appeal sitting in Benin City has fixed Friday June 9, 2017 to give judgement on the Appeal filled by the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) and Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu against the decision og the Justice Badamasi-led Edo State Election Petition Tribunal judgement which validated the election of Mr Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The appellants asked the court of Appeal to set aside the judgement of the Tribunal and declare Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu as winner of the September 28 2016 Edo State Gubernatorial Election.

The APC, INEC and Mr Obaseki asked the court to disregard the appeal by the appellants, and also filed a cross appeal asking the court to invalidate the order by the Tribunal for the inconclusive recount of ballot papers used during the election.

Whatever the decision of the Court of Appeal may be, either party reserves one last chance to make an appeal to the Supreme Court which decision on the matter is final and binding.
