The Court of Appeal in Abuja has ordered the Delta State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Asaba to resume review of the electoral process.
The appeal court while giving a ruling yesterday ordered the election petition tribunal of the just concluded Guber elections to revisit Pella’s petition.
Mr Pela, in his petition EPT/DL/GOV/01/23, is challenging the outcome of the 2023 governorship election in the state and seeking leave of the tribunal to nullify the declaration of Oborevwori as the Delta State governor.
The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was joined in the petition as 1st respondent while Governor Oborevwori and his Deputy, Monday Onyeme are 2nd and 3rd respondents respectively with the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as the 4th respondent.
Me Pella however displeased with the decision approached the appeal court seeking it to order the tribunal to revisit his petition.
