Candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for Ovia Federal Constituency, Barr. Omosede Igbinedion, has approached the Edo State Election Petitions Tribunal asking it to declared her winner of the February 23 National Assembly Election for Ovia Federal Constituency.

Omosede, the beloved daughter of the Esama of Benin, said she won majority of lawful votes cast in the election.

Her opponent in the All Progressives Congress, Hon. Dennis Idahosa, was declared winner of the election by the Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) and has since been issued with Certificate of Return.

Addressing reporters in Benin City shortly after submitting her petition, Barr. Omosede Igbinedion said she has several grounds to challenge the outcome of the election because she performed creditably well.

She noted that the results were not a true reflection of the people of Ovia Constituency as there was no reasons for her to lose the election.

She said: “There are several grounds which we intend to challenge the election. First thing is the candidate of the APC. There are so many things we know that tell us he was not worthy to contest the election.

“We want to contest the results which was not a reflection of Ovia Constituency. The people of Ovia came out to vote for the PDP. Where the discrepancies came from in Ovia South West were unfounded. I have several projects and there was no reason for us to lose the election”.
