The Court of Appeal sitting in Benin, Edo State, on Friday dismissed the appeal filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, challenging the emergence of Godwin Obaseki as ‎winner of the September 28, 2016, governorship poll.

The five-man panel, led by Justice M. B. Dongban Mensem, also dismissed a cross appeal filed by the All Progressives Congress against the PDP.

The Justice Ahmed Badamasi-led tribunal had on April 14 dismissed the petition of Ize-Iyamu and the PDP for lack of merit and upheld the declaration of ‎Obaseki as Governor by the Independent National Electoral Commission.
