Edo State Public Works Volunteers (PUWOV) have hailed last Saturday verdict on alleged forgery suit against Governor Godwin Obaseki at the Federal High court which dismissed the petition of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The Coordinator, PUWOV, Mukhtar Yusuf-Osagie disclosed this at an interactive session with journalists in Benin City, said the judgement was a victory which the main opposition party in the State “cannot change through the backdoors for Edo people”.
He advised members of the APC in the State to team up with the Governor and key into the MEGA manifesto of the ruling Peoples Democratic party (PDP) towards making the State as an investment hub for maximum benefit instead of seeking to overturn Obaseki re-election.
Justice Ahmed Mohammed dismissed the suit which was filed by the All Progressives Party (APC) and a Chieftain of the party, Williams Edobor, against the Governor for lack of proof.
Delivering judgement delivered on Saturday in the nation’s Capital, Justice Mohammed held that the plaintiffs relied on the photocopied document presented by Governor Obaseki without getting in touch with the University to verify the authenticity of the said Certificate.
He held that no iota of truth was brought before the court by the plaintiffs who alleged forgery, saying it was a criminal matter, but the claimants were unable to prove their case.
