The Supreme Court of Nigeria, on Friday, dismissed the certificate forgery case filed by the All Progressives Congress, (APC) against Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki.
It would be recalled a member of the ruling APC, Mr. Williams Edobor had filed the suit against the Governor and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
The court dismissed the suit for lack of merit in a unanimous judgement by a five-man panel of justices of the apex court, noting that the APC failed to prove their case against Obaseki.
The Federal High Court and the Court of Appeal in Abuja, had earlier dismissed the allegation that Obaseki tendered false credentials to INEC in pursuant of the governorship election that held in Edo state on September 19, 2020.
In its ruling, the apex court said it found no reason to set-aside the judgements given by the two lower courts.
The court went ahead to award a cost of N1million in favour of Governor Obaseki to be paid by the appellants.
