The Delta State Governorship Election Petition Tribunal sitting in Asaba has admitted a total of 4,978 documents tendered by the governorship candidate of the Social Democratic Party (SDP), Kenneth Gbagi against 13 respondents.

Daily Trust reports that Kenneth Gbagi, a former Minister of State for Education tendered the documents before the Justice C.H. Ahuchaogu-led three-man tribunal at the weekend.

The documents tendered by the petitioner include 4,634 forms of EC8A across 20 out of the 25 councils, 322 forms of EC8B in the same number of councils, 20 forms of EC8C, and one form each of EC8D and EC8E.

Other documents are two BVAS reports with accompanying receipts and certificates of compliance as well as one flash drive accompanied by the certificate of compliance.

The documents which were admitted in evidence by the court were tendered through Magaji Mato Ibrahim (SAN), counsel to the petitioner at the resumed hearing of his petition.

The three-man panel tribunal admitted the documents and marked them as exhibits despite opposition by respective counsel to the 1st to 13th respondents who, however, reserved their grounds of objection to final written addresses.

Gbagi is challenging the conduct of the March 18, 2023 governorship election as well as the subsequent declaration of Sheriff Oborevwori of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) the winner of the election by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
