Odogwu still come ask di pipu wey don watch di video sey make dem share am give odas.


E neva tey wey TheCable publish one tori wey di court of appeal for Abuja command di Delta state gubernatorial tribunal to hear di case wey Pela cari come.


Di Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) bin announce sey na Sheriff Oborevwori, candidate of di Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), win di March 18 election for di state.

Oborevwori bin gada 360,234 votes defeat Ovie Omo-Agege of di All Progressives Congress (APC) wey score 240,229.

Pela chop third position wit 48,027 votes, while Great Ogboru of di All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) sidan for fourth position with 11,021 votes.

Pela and im parti come file case for court to challenge di result, sey di candidates wey come first and second no dey qualified, dem chuk hand for corruption and sey dem no folo di Electoral Act.


Dem tell di tribunal sey make dem either annouce Pela as di winner of di election or make dem cancel di election do new one.


During the first hearing, Damian Dodo, di main lawyer to di govnor and im deputy, argue sey di LP case bin dey abandoned.

Dodo tok sey di petitioner bin no appear for di seven-day period wey di law tok sey im suppose make case, sey Pela and LP still no come apply for anoda pre-hearing notice, therefore im no get case again.


Di main lawyer to di govnor and im deputy tok sey di pesin wey cari case come apply for pre-hearing notice on May 19 before dem close pleadings, and becos of dat, di case no get head and court suppose no look am.

C.H Ahuchaogu, di chairperson of di tribunal three-member panel, dismiss Pela case for di ruling.


Na so Pela and LP vex sake of di mata, come cari am go court of appeal.

On August 31, di appeal court come finally ansa dem and give order sey make tribunal hear dia case.



Di post wey claim sey di tribunal announce Pela as di winner of di Delta governorship election no correct.
