BREAKING: Edo Guber Election: Court disqualifies Ize-Iyamu’s running mate

EDO, Nigeria – The State High Court sitting in Benin, on Wednesday voided the All Progressives Congress (APC) Deputy governorship candidate, Audu Ganiyu, in the September 19, 2020 governorship election.

A member of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Kadiri Oshoakhemhe, had filed a suit against Ganiyu and two others.

The presiding judge, Justice H.A Courage-Ogbebor, while delivering judgment, said Ganiyu presented false information to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in his Form EC9.

Ganiyu was Ize-Iyamu’s running mate during the poll won by Governor Godwin Obaseki of the PDP.
