The Edo State Governorship Election Petitions Tribunal will on Friday deliver judgement in a petition filed by the Peoples Democratic Party and its candidate, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu.‎

It was revealed that the three-man panel, led by Justice Ahmed Badamasi had informed the parties in the case of its readiness to deliver judgement before the expiration of the statutory 180 days on April 16.

The PDP and Ize-Iyamu are challenging the declaration of Godwin Obaseki of the All Progressives Congress as the winner of the September 28 governorship election by the Independent National Electoral Commission.

The petitioners had also listed Obaseki, APC and INEC as the first, second and third respondents, respectively, in the suit marked  which the tribunal heard before it reserved judgement after the parties adopted their final address on April 3.‎
