Tribunal Dismisses Petition Against Oshiomhole

The Edo State Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Benin City, the state capital, on Thursday dismissed the petition filed by Major General Charles Ehigie Airhiavbere (rtd), challenging the educational qualifications of the Edo State Governor, Comrade Adams Aliyu Oshiomhole, describing it as a wide goose chase.

In his ruling, the Chairman of the Tribunal, Suleiman Ambursa, said the petition is a pre-election matter that ought to be dispensed long before the July 14, 2012 governorship election.

It therefore struck out the petition on the ground that it is a pre-election matter that ought to have been sorted out before the July 14 governorship election.

  1. Sometimes, I realy wonder what is the political development of Nigerian Politicians whether their personal interests overide the welfare of the masses. Going to Edo State Election Tribunal to challenge the success of God given “Peoples General” of Edo politics who swept the poll in every local government in a tsunami style on such a flimsy reason as paper qualifications was nothing short of abuse of Court Process. Nigerians particularly the good Edo people are too happy that the highly enlightened Jusitices of the Election Trabunal could easily read in between the lines and threw away the appeal setting a very new but fair stadard on in election tribunal adjudication. Long live the good people of Edo State! Long live the good people of Nigeria
