Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo has been put in suspense by the Court of Appeal sitting in Abuja after it saved the decision for the situation documented by the All Progressives Congress to invalidate his re-election
A three-man board of judges declared the choice in the wake of tuning in to contentions from the two parties on Monday.
Now, he awaits the decision of the appeal court.
In their brief of argument, the APC and Edobor argued that at the lower court, issues of forgery and falsification were raised but the court only determined the issue of forgery and left out that of falsification.
In his response, counsel to Obaseki argued that based on the pleadings of the appellant, the false information allegedly submitted by the respondent was on the fact that he did not graduate from the University of Ibadan in 1979 and did not resign from Afri- Investment Limited.
According to him, the governor was duly and properly admitted to study Classics, which was later renamed Classical Studies in 1976 and graduated in 1979.
