Edo State Election Tribunal Results: Adams wins: What happens now?

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.

UPDATES:

3:02 P.M  20/03/08:

NTA Benin: Oshiomhole to be given certificate of Return for "Having scored the highest number of lawful votes"

AC had six SANs on their case.

The PDP Lawyer says that they will appeal.

Barr Iziyon of PDP: Listening to the 6 hour judgement, we know that we have very good grounds to appeal that judgement. We have grievances against the judgement.

The Judiciary are confusing Nigerians. One minute they are doing the right things and the next they are screwing everybody's head. This judgement is sound because justice had been done but what have they done to the people of Oyo and soon the people of Osun State? Because it seems that they are hail bent in keeping that thief of their governor in power despite all the rigging in Osun state.

It's good cancelling all this elections but what are the deterant for future rigging? I would love a scenario where Osunbor and all his legion of commissioners and advisers are ordered to refund all the salaries they had drawn while occupying their illegal positions and also orders Osunbor to pay the cost of Oshiohmole's legal bill. I will love to see those responsible for re-writing the results send to at least 10 years in prison with hard labour.

But Nigeria law written by the junta, will now allow Mr Osunbor to appeal this wonderful verdict just to buy time and within that time, along with his gang, they will steal as much as they can presiding over public purse. Talk of leaving a condenmed rat to look after the kitchen full of fish.

I have never believed in PDP, i am from Iruekpen the same place with d now 4ma Govnor of Edo State Osunbor, his younger brthers n my elder brothers r friends, they all campagned 4 him sum yrs past to win the senate, but he never appreiate them, even his younger at a time was livin with my brother in lagos after they've left school.

I love the man, but i dislike PDP, my elder brother almost got me screwed when shout Thank GOD! immediately i heard d good news.

I love Adams, he is an action man, d pipos choice, Osunbor too dull for my liking, and e kom go be PDP again, na that 1 just make everything worse.

i am not supporting his removal though, but i am supporting the truth, PDP is FAKE! anybody has this root will also b disgraced some day.

Up AC, long live Adams

Long Live Edo state

Long Live 9ja

It is indeed a victory for democracy. Adams is the rightful winner, Obasanjo rigged the election in favour of his criminal inlaw, Osunbor. Congrats Adams.
