The Delta Central Senatorial candidate of the Peoples’ Democratic Party (PDP) in the 2019 general election, Hon. Evelyn Omavowan Oboro has rejected the judgment of the Tribunal sitting in Asaba which dismissed her petition challenging the outcome of the election held on 23rd February, 2019 and insisted on going for appeal.

Oboro in a statement signed by her Media and Publicity Director, Hon. Sunday Apah, also faulted the refusal by the tribunal to make available the copy of the judgment despite applying for same as the elections related matters are time bound.

 The statement explained: “Our petition was the first petition filed before the registry of the tribunal and also the first petition where trial was commenced and concluded. It is worthy of note that we were abruptly forced to close our case by the tribunal despite having witnesses who had not testified.

“Trial in the petition was concluded on 17th of June, 2019 but it took the tribunal more than two months before it could deliver judgment knowing fully well that election matters are time bound. The same tribunal delivered judgment in a matter which had not even commenced at the time trial in our case was already concluded.

“We 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 the Tribunal is aware of it as time has started running".

The former Federal Lawmaker, who represented Okpe, Sapele, Uvwie Federal constituency in the 7th and 8th National Assembly appealed to her supporters to be calm. She expressed optimism that the judgment will be set aside on appeal by God's grace, as the court is the hope of the common man.

Oboro also appealed to the tribunal to urgently make available  the copy of the judgment so that she can start the process of appeal in earnest.

Admonishinh her teeming supporters, Oboro waxed Biblical, saying "weeping may tarry all night but joy cometh in the morning".
