Sheriff Oborevwori as the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2023 governorship election in Delta State.
The three-man panel led by Justice Peter Ige on Monday set aside Oborevwori’s sack on the grounds that the lower court erred in law in reaching the conclusion that Oborevwori was not qualified to participate in the governorship election on account of forgery and perjury.
Justice Taiwo Taiwo of the Federal High Court Abuja had on July 7, sacked Oborevwori as the candidate of the PDP in next year’s governorship election in Delta State on grounds of alleged forgery of his academic certificates and perjury.
Delivering judgment in the appeal on Monday, Justice Ige agreed with the appellant that the suit filed by David Edevbie was wrongly initiated because allegations of criminal offences must be proven beyond affidavit evidences.
The court held that failure of Edevbie to call relevant witnesses was fatal to the case.
