The supreme court has dismissed a certificate forgery suit against Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki.
The All Progressives Congress (APC) and Williams Edobor, a chieftain of the party, had filed a suit against Obaseki, accusing him of forging the first degree certificate which he submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to enable him contest the governorship election.
In a unanimous decision on Friday, a five-member panel of justices of the apex court ruled that the appellants failed to prove their case against Obaseki.
Emmanuel Agim, who read the lead judgment, stated that the appellants woefully failed to substantiate their forgery allegation against the governor.
The court dismissed the appeal and awarded N1 million cost against the appellants.
