- ADP had approached the court over his recent victory at the polls
- Meanwhile, the tribunal is headed by Justice Yunusa
Two of the petitions were filed by the Action Democratic Party (ADP) and its candidate, Iboi Emmanuel; and Tracy Agol.
Agol did not include her party, the New Nigeria Peoples Party (NNPP) in the petition against Governor Obaseki.
The tribunal had recently dismissed a petition by the Action Alliance (AA) and its candidate, Ukonga Onaivi, against Obaseki, PDP and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).
In another report, Obaseki on Saturday, March 20, called on the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to zone its 2023 presidential ticket to the south-south.
The Edo governor made this call in Benin, the state capital, at a reception ceremony to honour Chief Dan Orbih, PDP's new national chairman for the region.
Obaseki said it will amount to equity and fairness if the south-south is allowed to produce Nigeria's next president.
The state chairman of the party, Tony Aziegbemi, gave the advice on Monday, March 15, during an address to journalists in Benin city.
The party chieftain said the south-south zone was short-changed when President Goodluck Jonathan was denied a second term.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the houses of a former deputy governor of Edo, Pius Odubu and two APC chieftains, Mike Etemuagbon and Prof. Julius Ihonvbere, have been demolished.
Odubu told journalists that the building, occupied by his younger brother and members of his family, was brought down without his notice
The former deputy governor revealed that he only learnt on Tuesday, March 23, that his property located at Dennis Osadebe Avenue in the Government Reservation Area (GRA), Benin City has been demolished on the orders of Governor Godwin Obaseki.
