Edo APC: Dekeri seeks nullification of Okpebholo’s candidacy

The battle for the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Edo State has taken a legal dimension with a suit seeking to invalidate the declaration of Monday Okpebholo as winner of the primary.

He cited the case of Ojukwu V. Military Governor Of Lagos State and Ors (1985) LPELR-21274 (CA) to remind INEC not to act against the law.

Meanwhile, some luminaries have claimed that Dekeri has a clear case since he was declared the winner by the local government returning officer, who was mandated by the party to collate and announce the results as the polling unit, while the main committee is just ceremonial.

Furthermore, political analysts said Dekeri has the support and war chest to win the governorship election against the opposition party, as many electorates see Dekeri as another Obidients Movement for Edo State.
