Oba of Benin urges Ize-Iyamu to accept tribunal’s verdict

The Oba of Benin, Oba Ewuare II, on Saturday advised the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governorship candidate in Edo State, Pastor Osagie Ize-Iyamu, to accept the verdict of the state election petitions tribunal.

A statement signed by the monarch’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Desmond Agbama, said the monarch noted that despite the tribunal’s verdict, there was no victor no vanquished in the election.

The three-man tribunal on Friday dismissed Ize-Iyamu’s petition and upheld the victory of Governor Goodwin Obaseki.

Ize-Iyamu and his party, the PDP, had challenged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) declaration of Obaseki of the All Peoples Congress (APC) as winner of the Sept 28, 2016 governorship election in Edo.

“In an election, there is no victor and no vanquished.

“Consequently, Osagie Ize-Iyamu should accept the decision of the tribunal in good faith and forge ahead in the task of providing democracy dividends for the people,” the Oba said.

He congratulated Obaseki on his victory, and urged him to focus on sanitising the society, providing critical infrastructure and creating job opportunities for the teeming unemployed youths in the state.
