The Edo State Governorship Election Tribunal will from January 11, 2020, decide the fate of Governor Godwin Obaseki; his deputy Philip Shaibu; the People’s Democratic Party; and the Independent National Electoral Commission in four of the five petitions filed at the Tribunal in Benin.

The Justice Yunusa Musa-led three-member tribunal at wednesay’s sitting gave detailed reports of the pre-hearing sittings of the last two weeks.

Justice Musa, assisted by Justices Suleiman Abubakar and Olufunmilayo Stanley, disclosed that hearing in the four petitions would separately be on January 11, 12 and 13, 2021.

The tribunal will sit on the four remaining petitions after dismissing AA petition and its governorship candidate, Ukonga Onaivi, against Obaseki, PDP and INEC, for failing to file pre-hearing notice.

The four other petitions before the tribunal were filed by Action Democratic Party and its governorship candidate, Iboi Emmanuel; Action Peoples Party, without joining its governorship candidate, Amos Areloegbe; Allied Peoples Movement, excluding its governorship candidate, Igbineweka Osamuede; and Tracy Agol, without joining her political party, the New Nigeria Peoples Party.
