The Supreme Court has dismissed the appeal filed by Omo-Agege, the immediate past Deputy President of the Senate seeking to nullify the election of Governor Sheriff Oborevwori of Delta State for lacking in merit.
He contended that the election was not conducted in substantial compliance with provisions of the Electoral Act.
He told the apex court that the results of the governorship election were not properly recorded at some polling units, adding that the forms that contained some of the recorded results did not have serial numbers.
However, the Supreme Court in a unanimous judgment delivered by Justice John Okoro on Friday, dismissed the appeal.
Justice Okoro held that the appellant was unable to prove the allegations of substantial none compliance with the extant laws during the conduct of the March 18, governorship election in the state.
