The Court of Appeal in Benin has ruled in favour of the governorship candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the September 19, 2020 election in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, and his running mate, Alhaji Gani Audu.

On Monday, March 8, the Appeal Court set aside the judgment of the Edo State High Court which disqualified the duo from participating in the governorship election.

The three-member panel of the appellate court unanimously declared that there was no evidence to back up the allegation of credentials’ forgery against Audu.

The judges also declared that the suit was statute-barred since it was filed outside the 14-day constitutional threshold. The court, therefore, upheld the appeal of Ize-Iyamu and Audu and set aside the judgment of the lower court.
