The Court dismissed the appeal filed by the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Sandy Onor, for lack of merit..
Reacting to the judgement in a statement through his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Ogbeche, Governor Otu
said, “This ruling should bring an end to litigation on the outcome of the governorship election.
