SAN FRANCISCO, January 23, (THEWILL) – The election petitions tribunal in Edo State Wednesday gave Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole another significant victory against Mr. Charles Arhiavbere, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in last year’s governorship election, when it dismissed the petition filed by Arhiavbere, challenging the results of the election as declared by INEC.

The tribunal in a ruling on Wednesday morning (local time) said the petitioner failed woefully to provide evidence to prove that the elections were marred with fraud, and that it was not conducted according to the dictates of the electoral act as amended.

The petitioner had listed 11 local government areas in the state where it alleged that there were irregularities.
