Election Tribunal: PDP candidate Eruaga declared winner in Oshiomhole’s constituency
The court of Appeal election tribunal sitting in Benin City, Edo State this evening upheld the decision of the Edo State House of Assembly election Petition tribunal declaring the PDP candidate Chief Sylvanus Eruaga as winner of the election and ordered that he be sworn in as member representing Estako West II constituency in the Edo State House of Assembly within 48hours!
Ironically, this is the constituency of Governor Adams Oshiomhole. You will recall that the state chairman of PDP, chief Dan Orbih predicted that Gov Oshiomhole’s rejection will begin from his home and that he will be represented by a PDP member in the state house of Assembly. This judgement is a clear vindication of that statement. It also shows that no amount of dancing, unguarded and unsubstantiated allegations as well as Naira induced decamping of gullible politicians will stop the resolve of the people of Edo state to get rid of the hypocritical APC and loquacious Governor!
This judgement and court order has been described by Chief Dan Orbih as “political” Christmas present to the loyal, dedicated and committed PDP members in Edo State. He said it was a sign of the things to come. He thanked the people of Estako West II constituency for their support during and after elections. He promised them quality and honest representation from Hon Sylvanus Eruaga.
