Edo State Election Tribunal Results: Osunbor's Election has been nullified. Oshiomhole has been declared winner.
Meanwhile, what happens now? It was ordered that Oshiomhole be given a certificate of return. Therefore if Osunbor's Appeal fails, there wont be a reelection, Osunbor will go.
But will Oshiomhole be able to return the support he had from the grassroot and better Osunbor's present "record". Or will he bow to the whims of his hidden "Godfathers" maybe including (as rumoured) Lucky Igbinedion. Well only time will tell.
Personally, I believe Oshiomhole will do FAR better than Osunbor. He has already p[rovced his worth while he was at the NLC.
