Nigeria: Edo LG poll: Court orders re-run in Esan North-East

BENIN—THE Edo State Local Government Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Benin City, yesterday, ordered a re-run election for the chairmanship of Esan North-East Local Government Area of the state.

It will be recalled that the candidate of Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, Mr John Yakubu, challenged at the tribunal, the declaration of the candidate of All Progressives Congress, APC, Mr Sam Oboh, as  winner of the chairmanship election held on October 22, 2013.

Esan North-East is the council of the chairman of the Board of Trustees of PDP, Chief Tony Anenih.

The chairman of PDP in Edo State, Chief Dan Orbih, in his reaction, welcomed the  judgment with mixed feelings, saying that the tribunal should have declared PDP candidate winner of the poll.
