BREAKING: Ize-Iyamu, Audu Win as Appeal Court Delivers Judgement on Edo Elections
The gubernatorial candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the last governorship election in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, and his running mate, Alhaji Gani Audu on Monday morning won their case at the Court of Appeal in Benin.
A three-member panel of the court set aside a judgment of the Edo High Court, Benin, which disqualified both men from participating in the keenly contested election.

Justices O.F. Omoleye, B.A. Georgewill and O.E. Oho jointly declared that there was no evidence of credentials’ forgery on the part of Audu.
The suit was also declared statute-barred due to the fact that it was filed outside the 14-day constitutional threshold, thereby upholding the appeal of Ize-Iyamu and Audu.
