Delta PDP Gubernatorial: Supreme Court Fixes October 21 For Judgement
Written by City Radio on October 12, 2022
The Supreme Court has fixed October 21, for judgment in an appeal filed by the Delta State governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 governorship election, Mister David Edevbie.
By his appeal, Edevbie is asking the Supreme Court to re-affirm his candidacy.
In a 23- ground of Appeal, Edevbie, faulted the entire unanimous decision of the three-man panel of the Court of Appeal led by Justice Peter Ige and asked the apex court to hold that he is the rightful candidate of the PDP in the Delta State governorship election slated for February next year.
A five-man panel of the apex court led by Justice Amina Augie, approved the matter for judgement, after all the parties adopted their final briefs of arguments.
The trial court held that evidence before it confirmed that the defendant supplied false and forged documents to the PDP in aid of his qualification for the governorship election.
