Governor Godwin Obaseki of Edo State has hailed the Appeal Court judgment which cleared him of a certificate forgery case preferred against him by the All Progressives Congress, APC, during the Edo 2020 governorship election.
Governor Obaseki, in a statement, said the ruling by the Court of Appeal vindicates him and reiterates the fact that the suit was, from the onset, a frivolous attempt to exploit Edo people through the backdoor as it was without any merit whatsoever.
Obaseki described the judgement by the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja as a victory for democracy, equity, fairness, and justice which further reassures confidence in the judiciary as an impartial umpire.
“The judgement today by the Appeal Court sitting in Abuja on the certificate forgery case against me by the @OfficialAPCNg is a victory for democracy, equity, fairness and justice. It further reassures confidence in the judiciary as an impartial umpire.
“From the beginning, all Edo people knew there was no merit in the case. It was ill-willed. It is comforting that the judiciary has again upheld the truth and the verdict of Edo people,” he wrote on Twitter.
