Edo Election Tribunal: PDP’s Tragic Drama

THE Edo State Election Petition Tribunal examining the 2016 governorship election has justifiably and rightly terminated the spurious drama that was being staged by the PDP in the past few months. The temple of justice gave infallible legal affirmation to the incorruptible political aspiration of Edo people as overwhelmingly expressed in the choice of Governor Obaseki in the historic September 28 election. The dignified lordships of the tribunal upheld the unchangeable conclusion of INEC that the APC transparently and freely earned a total of 319,483 (three hundred and nineteen thousand, four hundred and eighty three) votes as against the PDP’s 253,173 (two hundred and fifty three thousand one hundred and seventy three) votes. The gap of nearly 70,000 (seventy thousand) votes was perceived as an insurmountable lead that the PDP could not possibly overcome to obtain anything significant from the tribunal.
