BREAKING NEWS ::: Edo Election Tribunal Sacks Prof Osunbor, Declares Oshiomole Winner!!!!!

The Elections Petitions Tribunal sitting in Benin City, the Edo State capital, this afternoon ( Thursday, March 20, 2008) ruled that it was the former President of the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC) and Governorship Candidate of the Action Congress (AC), Mr. Adams Oshiomole, that won the April 2007 Governorship Elections in Edo State, and not Prof Oserhiemen Osunbor of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as claimed by the Prof Maurice Iwu-led ‘Independent’ National Electoral Commission (INEC).


Prof Osunbor : Sacked by the Tribunal

Delivering the well anticipated judgment, which lasted over four hours, the Tribunal Chairman, Justice Peter Umeadi, declared that based on the evidence before the Tribunal, it was Oshiomole who scored the highest number of votes and not Osunbor. Oshiomole, he said, had scored a total of 166, 577 votes.

He then directed that a Certificate of Return be issued to Mr. Oshiomole immediately by INEC, and that he should be sworn in as the Executive Governor of Edo State.

Adams Oshiomole: On His Way To The Throne?

The outcome of the Governorship Electoral dispute in Edo State, which has engaged widespread national interest, has been widely hailed. Wild jubilatons greeted the Tribunal’s ruling in Benin and several parts of Edo State.

But counsel to Prof Osunbor, while speaking with reporters immediately after the ruling, indicated their intention to appeal the judgment. It remains to be seen what the Appeal Tribunal will rule………

    At a time like this when our national image has been smeared in corruption, news like these as well as the probe on the defunct governor of Edo state (as well as other ex-governors) by the EFCC portends hope in our judicial and political system. The nigerian democratic system is only less than 10 years old and for the first time in my existence I am beginning to feel that the voice of the people is being heard. It is imperative that we continue on this path if we intend to remain the proverbial giant of Africa. To Mr Oshiomole this is a mandate for you to keep the “Heartbeat of Nigeria” beating at its optimum. Cheers!!!

    There is an urhobo proverb that says “What has happened in the Goats house could ultimately happen in that of the sheep”.

    Watching the tribunal deliver its judgment live on television gave thousands of the down trodden people of Edo state (and Delta state as well) the opportunity to witness first hand the triumph of good and truth over evil. Osunbor can go to any length and appeal the judgment but he shouldn’t expect any result to the contrary. He stole the mandate of the people and now it is being taken back from him.

    Many governors have now been sacked as it were by these election tribunals for their electoral malpractices and sometimes outright theft of the people’s mandate. I believe this in itself is a crime, and therefore these dubious politicians should be made to face the music once they have been stripped of the wrongly acquired status. They committed a crime against the people and as such should be prosecuted as ordinary criminals that they truly are. This will serve as a deterrent to others who are already scheming for the next election.

    The way that election tribunal in Benin went about its business is so satisfying. Having a recount to remove any doubts and ambiguity, and clearly identifying the areas where fraud and illegality actually took place made its conclusion and judgement plain enough for the lay man to understand. Not that we didn’t know before now that Osunbor stole the election!

    Now we look forward to what happens in Delta state to the immediate south. Uduaghan should at least know how he came into power so shouldn’t be reminded that justice and truth could catch up with him anytime soon. You can not steal the people’s votes and disrespect their will while pretending to want to serve them. We know where voting took place in Delta state and where it never. Voting in Oghara and in Uduaghan’s own backyard doesn’t equate to Delta state.

    While we wait for what happens in Delta state, I just want the likes of Uduaghan and Osunbor to know that ultimately they could answer for their crime against the people of their states. Theft is crime, and stealing of votes is just as bad as, if not worse than daylight armed robbery!

    I am really happy for Adams Oshiomole for claiming what belongs to him. He is a man of action, a man of wisdom and also a man that is fully loaded with intelligences. Prof Osunbor is only a small boy in where Adams Oshiomole is. Is only God that will punish those that knows the truth of the matter and hide it, especially that Old man that is popularly known as old Pussy Cat in Edo state that can not even take care of his families whose name is chief tony anineh.

    Thank God the truth is out. I am happy Now. Adams Oshiomole, you are too rouged. seven Gbosa for you alone. Gbosa Gbosa Gbosa Gbosa Gbosa Gbosa and Gbosa.
