The Senatorial Candidate of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Delta Central District, Rt. Hon. Evelyn Omavowan Oboro has expressed dissatisfaction over the inability of the Election Petition Tribunal to make available copy of judgment it delivered six days ago on the petition challenging the outcome of the Delta Central Senatorial election held on 23rd February, 2019.
Oboro promised to approach the National Judicial Council and Nigeria Bar Association if the tribunal continue with the delay in making available copy of the judgment.
In a statement signed by her Media and Publicity Director, Hon. Sunday Apah, Oboro frowned at the refusal by the tribunal to make available the copy of the judgment despite applying for same over six days ago.
She explained in the statement that her petition was the first filed before the registry of the tribunal and also the first petition where trial was commenced and concluded.
She lamented in the statement that there was no day past that her counsels and aides don’t go to the court to ask of the copy of the judgment but they gave them excuses that are not genuine. “So I sees it as a deliberate attempt to delay our moves to appeal the judgment at the Court of Appeal”.
“I have decided to appeal the judgment and copy of the judgment needed by our counsel to file Notice of Appeal is not yet ready after closure of our case over two months ago and and judgment over six days ago”, she said.
